    1. her and me (object pronouns with 'let')
    2. are (scissors is a plural noun)
    3. realize, color and organize are US (in many words, American English favors 'z' over 's' and 'or' over 'our')

    I do agree with Francois. Answers are quite right.

    I may add the singular form of scissors here which is "a pair of scissors"
