Probably 1 should be a, but you could use b if the context is referring to somewhere, where you quite obviously no longer go.

2d
3a
4b
5a
6a or 6d (there is a typing error in 6a!)
7c (none of the others can be used)
8a
9b - it would have been correct to use during here, but obviously the exercise didn't give you that option.
10b

In my opinion only "It's two months since they divorced" is correct.
Thank you very much Elisabeth! Your comments help me a lot!
