Can anyone please explain -

1) error because of it. (I am able to get it)
2) This is correct but i think this will show a run on sentence as both Independent clause are joined by a comma.
3) Saves does not have a subject - ??
4) error because of it (I am able to get it)
5) Introductory that makes a sentence fragment .... How ???
