1. ... you've drunk too much. (You need the past participle form of the verb in present perfect tense)

4. We've owned this house... (own is a stative verb and can't be used with -ing)

8. How much money... (money is uncountable, so you need to use much.)

9. ... I'm not used to living in a big city. (After be used to, you need a gerund, that is the verb with -ing)
