    1. correct

    2. my = correct; will follow up = the verb, yes. This is an example of what are called Phrasal Verbs: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/phrasals.htm

    3. correct; and yes, "present" is a noun.

    4. "on" is not a conjunction.

    Carelessness gets you every time!
    If you look I put in the correct letter- g. but wrote the wrong thing.

    on = preposition.
