  1. 1. Nuestro primo se llama (you forgot the verbal ending.

    Because su can nean "his,her,it's, their, have you learned how to how WHOSE it is yet? #1. su libro de él = now it MUST be tranalated as HIS book.

    You might consider that also for #6 and #8.

    Now, in the 3rd set:
    #2 Marí es su hermana. María es tu hermana.

    #5. Ti tío le gusta manzanas. First of all remember that the verb "gustar" does NOT work like other verbs. It is used in 3rd-person singular form when one thing is peasing to HIM. In this case, the apples (plural) ARE interesting TO your uncle. Here is what it has to be: A tu tío le gustan manzanas.

    #8. Sus padres mucho trabajar. Now you have no conjugated verb here. The sentence must be: Sus padres trabajan mucho.

    10. Mi tía es una maestra. With professions that are not modified (no adjective), drop "una" = Mi tía es maestra.
