  1. Excellent until #5.
    lui = to/for/at/from him, her,it
    leur = to/for/at/from them (people or things)

    These are 3rd person singular and plural INDIRECT Object Pronouns. That means that one of the words "to/for/at/from" will either be understood or stated.

    Now, if you look at #5 (au pharmacien) it is still to ONE person = lui. Do not let the fact that the direct object noun (des medicaments) is there.

    5. lui donne (check spelling there)
    6. This is the same example of giving something TO ONE PERSON = lui

    Part 2 is perfect (parfait!)

    #3 = when in doubt ALWAYS put any object pronoun (be it direct or indirect) directly in front of the conjugated verb. That is called "playing it safe" because you will only be wrong with an affirmative command or when the object is the object of an infinitive.
    3. Je les aime bien.

    Part 4 = Prends garde! Watch out! Now you have direct-objects in with indirect-objects AND objects of infinitives.

    1. First of all you are answering the question. Are YOU inviting? I am not.
    Next question: do you have an indirect object (to/for/at/from someone?) NO. Therefore you have a direct object pronoun. I am not inviting him. = Je ne l'invite (note ending on verb agrees with "je") pas.

    2. First question: Are you GOING to him? NO. Is it to telephone him? YES. It IS the indrect-object pronoun but it is the object of the infinitive and not of the verb aller. Je ne vais pas lui téléphoner.

    3. This is similar in the first question, BUT it is not an indirect-object pronoun; it is a direct-object pronoun. Je ne vais pas les voir. (note that to/for/at/from is NOT here)

    4. The only thing wrong is the verb "donner" MUST agree with "Je" the subject = Je donne = Je ne leur donne pas...

    5. The negative (ne...pas) works around the conjugated verb. Je ne vais pas leur expliquer...

    Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. I can send an explanation of the direct-object pronouns versus the indirect-object pronouns, if you so desire.
