    Are the answers above correct? Please help.

    With one exception, you corrections are fine.

    Your reasons for each one, however, are not correct -- not any of them.

    Please re-think.

    2. You're right to change wants to want. However, it is not a run-on sentence. It's a complex sentence with an independent and a dependent clause.

    3. I don't see any verb tense error. You're right to break this run-on into separate sentences.

    4. Your correction is right, but it's a verb tense problem, not a subject-verb agreement problem.
