Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. It would be much easier to correct these if you had given the "sentences" numbers. The main problem here is that many of them are NOT sentences but partians.

#1, fine
#2, 3, 4, are NOT complete sentences (no main verb.)
#5, fine
#6, 7, incomplete sentences.
#8, 9 = incomplete sentences
#10 = not a comma but a semicolon (; = ;) to avoid a run-on sentence.
