    "Hey," he asked, "who are they?" this is not written correctly because "who" should be capitalized into "Who"

    "No," she said "that is painful." this could be correct, but shouldn't there be a comma after said?

    "His mother, he said, "is taking night classes". This is wrong because the it should be: classes." instead of classes". Also "is" should be capitalize into "Is"

    "Mother," he asked. "May I go out"? This is wrong because there shouldn't be a period and the question mark should be in the quotations instead of outside.

    Question 1 only #2 might be written correctly?
