  1. 1. Peter Williams' farm (no extra -s needed on a multi-syllable word). No, it's not clear which pronouns refer to "He" and which to "Peter Williams'"

    2. She sat down in an empty seat, and a man asked her to give up her seat to him.

    3. In ( ) is correct.

    4. Should be "... a person who thinks only about himself." You want the word "only" as close as possible to whatever it's modifying.
