  1. 1 is b. Do you see them -- 2 subj-verb agr errors here.

    2. Correct.

  2. 1. restoration = subject
    should it be
    The restoration appears to be excellent,

    I would write the sentence as follows:
    The restoration as well as the position of the hooks appears to be excellent.
    Which probably broke more rules!
    I am sure I am missing punctuation!

  5. "The patient was placed in the wheelchair with the fractured tibia." This is a modifier error. A modifier is a phrase that modifies part of the sentence - in this case, the modifier is "with the fractured tibia". When a modifier is placed incorrectly, it changes the meaning of the sentence. Last I checked, wheelchairs don't have tibias to fracture, therefore, this is a modifier error.
