This is quite a lot for one question. It feels like you are looking for someone to do your homework. Other than item #10, you haven't asked a question. We are just volunteers here who enjoy discussing grammar. If you have a specific question, you'll usually get a complete answer.

I am extremely sorry,I thought I could just ask anything. Next time I will keep that in mind and try to post my problems separately so that it becomes easier to get help. From 1-9 I just want to know whether these sentences are grammatically OK or not and if they are not then how should they be so that I can know actually where my mistake was.

#10.  The words that come to mind are mean-spirited teasing, torture, or attempted murder -- depending on the severity.

Thanks for your reply. Actually what I was looking for is, when someone is drowning in water his/her boobs up and down into the water and all the while water goes through his/her mouth and nose. Now instead of writing all these lines is there any specific word/term that can describe everything.

Correction:bob's up and down.

AzharSep 05 '12 at 07:40

Correction: head bob's up and down. Sorry again.

AzharSep 05 '12 at 07:43

There is no specific word that I can think of. You will need to describe all of that action. A;so, when someone bobs up & down, there is no apostrophe.
