5 ) Kennings are metaphorical expressions in which a word is substituted for by a compound word, e.g. “scholar’s home” for “school” . (is it all right to use e.g. or “as for example” in this case?)
6) A sentence is incomplete and another does not make sense at all since you chose a wrong conjunction.
