Careful, now. "Ad" never takes the ablative, and I think you probably should use the dative here anyway (so keep the "his exercitiis" and drop the "ad").

2. Cur dormire non potest?

Pes ei dolet. [Pes sibi dolet.]

It can't be "sibi", because that would mean "The foot hurts itself". "Sibi" can only refer back to the subject of the sentence, and the subject here is "pēs", not "Quīntus".

11. Estne fractum crus eius?

Nulla ossa eius fractum est.

"Ossa" is plural, but "frāctum" is singular. I think singular would be best here -- if I'm not mistaken, nūllus usually appears in the singular except when it's used with nouns that are usually plural -- so it should be "Nūllum os eius frāctum est."

12. Quare Quintus flere incipit?

Pes tibi dolet. / Quintus dolorem patitur nec tamen flet.

The "tibi" doesn't make sense here. Also, Quintus apparently does begin to cry (hence Syra's "Nōlī flēre!"), and the reason -- or at least the reason he claims -- isn't because of his foot.


14. Marcusne cum aliis pueris ludit?

Marcus cum nemo ludit quod Iulius medum iubere eum in cubiculo inclusit.

"Nēmō" is nominative, so it can't be used with "cum". Nēmō is generally used only in the nominative, accusative, and dative, so forms of "nūllus" substitute for the genitive (nūllīus) and ablative (nūllō). Post-Classical Latin can decline nēmō as a normal third-declension noun, though.

"Iubēre" shouldn't be in the infinitive either, and "inclusit" should be, so I think you got the indirect speech inflections backwards.

Hence this should be, "Mārcus cum nūllō lūdit quod Iūlius iussit Mēdum eum in cubiculō inclūdere."


15. Cur Quintus ignorat Marcum inclusum esse?

Quintus cum nemo ludit aut dicit quod pes aeger ei dolet et necesse est in cubiculo suo manere.

This has the same "nēmō" issue, but otherwise seems fine to me.

"quas" is feminine, but "responsa" is neuter plural, so you want "quae dedi his exercitiis."

6. Cur aves in horto silent?

Aves in horto silent quia tempestatum exspectant. / Quia tempestate territae sunt.


"quia tempestatem expectant."
Horae quidem cedunt et dies et menses et anni, nec praeteritum tempus umquam revertitur nec quid sequatur sciri potest. Quod cuique temporis ad vivendum datur, eo debet esse contentus. --Cicero, De Senectute

and "quas" must be "quae" because "responsa" is neutrum.

EDIT: oops, I did not notice thesaurus already said that! :D
