Yaggy,

Pretty good. But note the following.

You can't have anything PERFECT without the auxiliary verb have (has, or had).

Check these again: 1, 3, 6, 15

You can't have anything CONTINOUS without a verb form that ends in -ing.

Check 2 again.

How about if you check those and resubmit your new answers?
