I need to know which alternatives (?) sound best. Thank you.

1) Describe what living and working conditions for slaves in 19-th century America were like. Refer then to when slave trade was banned from US (or the United States or America).
2)Describe the details of Winston Smith's life as they appear in the opening (?) to George Orwell's 1984?
3) Why can Orwell's 1984 be considered as an anti-utopian novel?
4) Go over George Orwell's life focusing your attention on those episodes which strengthened his indifference to accepted values and strong-mindedness. (not mindness?)
5) Through the shut window pane of his one-room apartment he can see a colourless place lit up (?) by the posters which are plastered everywhere.
6) On the opposite house-front he can see the poster of a black-moustached man looking down at (or "over"?) the captions “Big Brother is watching you”. Big brother, portrayed as a man with a black moustache, is the face of the Party.
