First of all, welcome (and finally .... Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes ), one more thing, you should use your real name Miss peace Jamaica Very Happy Very Happy :

(there is one spelling mistake in the 7th question (they are supposed to be playing...) Smile )

As for your answers, most of the tense changes are correct, but don't forget that some are in the negative form, and also, don't neglect the subject as it is (in most cases) should be mentioned.

Good luck Khaoula Smile
