english to greek help


I just finished the chapter in my texbook on the subjunctive mood, and part of the exercises is to render five sentences from english into greek. I was hoping I could get some input on my work for the last four sentences. I realize they are probably pretty simple, but as I am working on my own, any help/input makes a big difference.
