Hi Nameless,

 

This looks like a homework assignment, and we aren't going to do your homework for you.  We also don't often take kindly to commands.  This is a forum for people to ask questions about grammar and word usage.  There are no employees here.  If you have a question about how to identify a certain part of speech, feel free to post a question.
