    1.The cartel little(A) opportunities to keep(B) prices at a level that(C) they feel is(D) appropriate.
    There needs to be a verb between "cartel" and "little"

    2.The computer training covered(A) everything from(B) to making(C) a file to creating a database(D).
    The word "to" needs to be deleted.

    3.The policeman ordered the suspect(a) to don't remove(B) his hands(C) from the(D) hood of the car.
    The verb form after "suspect" should be "not to remove"

    4.The future(A) of our(B) company depends(C) the project quickly.(D)
    The preposition "on" needs to be inserted after "depends" and "quickly" needs to be deleted.

    5.I can tell you if(A) your loan has approved(B) just as soon as(C) the credit report arrives.(D)
    The second verb needs to be "has been approved"

    The best way I know to find these errors is to read the sentences aloud or ask someone to read them aloud to you.

    There needs to be a verb between "cartel" and "little"

    In addition, the word "little" needs to be changed to "few"
