  1. 1) is two prepositional phrases, beginning "outside" and "during".
    2) "you" is the subject. You are wrong about the verb and phrases.
    3) correct. The verb phrase is "haven't been sold".
    4) correct.
    5) "a prize" is not part of the prepositional phrase. 'for" is the preposition. What part of speech is "a prize"?
    6) Verb and subject are correct. What are the prepositions? There are two.
    7) Verb and subject are correct. Again, what is the preposition. "his arm" contains no preposition at all.
    8) I believe the subject is the "spectators". A "specter" is a ghost. Your verb phrase is incorrect. The prepositional phrase is correct.
    9) subject and verb are correct. There are three prepositional phrases.
    10) There's another prepositional phrase here. Subject and verb are correct.
    11) There is a third prepositional phrase in this sentence. You're good with subject and verb.
