  1. 1. What are the dangerous things which can happen around us? (Is this OK?)
    It's fine, yes.

    2. What did Mina's friends and Giho's friends each submit homework about?
    2-1. About what did Mina's friends and Giho's friends each submit homework?
    (Are both correct? Which one is a colloquial expression?)
    It would be smoother to say this: What did Mina's and Giho's friends submit homework about?

    3. Rules are important for each group.
    3-1. Rules are important to each group.
    (Which preposition do I have to use? Are both OK?)
    They have slightly different meanings, but both are grammatically correct. "For each group" means that the rules are governing those groups. "To each group" means that each group considers the rules important.

    4. Therefore, people have to obey the rules in their group.
    4-1. Therefore, people have to obey the rules in their groups.
    (Are both OK? Do we have to use the singular 'group' or the plural 'groups'?))
    Either is fine, depending on what you mean. Do the people belong to different groups?

    5. There are also many rules in sports.
    5-1. Also there are many rules in sports.
    5-2. There are many rules in sports also.
    (What is the right position of 'also'?)
    It's fine in any of those postions, but probably #5 is most commonly used.

    6. At the corner of the street, you must wait for the green light.
    6-1.At the corner on the street, you must wait for the green light.
    6-3. At the corner in the street, you must wait for the green light.
    (Which preposition do we have to use before 'the street' in this case?)
    The first one is best.

    =)
