What would you like checked here?

 

Generally, we do not check homework or assignments unless you have a specific question.

 

17 has an incorrect verb form

 

21 has awkward use of exorbitant and an awkward use of the passive voice

 

22 'hence' is used incorrectly

 

23 punctuation around the relative clause (starting with 'that') is incorrect.  This relative clause is defining.

 

24 puntuation for the dialogue is incorrect.  You're missing a comma and the placement of the attribute is awkward.

 

25 'should of' does not exist in English language.  You are confusing it with the contraction for 'should have' (should've)

 

In future, please write with a specific request.
