  1. 5. Put the word "and" between threatened "and" plundered.
    6. menial (not plural = adjective)
    Yes, hectogram = 100 grams


    P.S. I would not add anything within parentheses.

  2. Again and again ... you need to put proper punctuation at the ends of sentences -- usually periods, but sometimes question marks or exclamation marks.
