1. 2nd Semeseter Intake (Is this correct when they want to say that they are accepting enrollment of students for 2nd. Semester?).
I think this is correct.
2. "No one care for you like us." (The same institute posted its advertisement for enrollment of students) Should it be "No one cares about you/ cares you like us"?
No one + singular verb --> No one cares
care for and care about can be used in this situation.
3. From another institute, it says "Grammar for enhancing English Writing Proficiency" What is the correct way of writing for this kind of phrase. Should it be "Grammar for enhancing the English Writing Proficiency/ Grammar for enhancing of the English Writing Proficiency", or not?
"enhancing English Writing Proficiency" could be correct as it is an indefinite noun phrase. Yet you may add the definite article "the" to the sentence. "enhancing of" seems not an appropriate pattern.
4. "Signing Contract Ceremony". This advertisement is made by two big companies in my country posted in a newspaper. Should it be written "Signing of Contract Ceremony or Signing the Contract Ceremony"
, or not?
No, your suggestions were wrong. The words form a noun phrase. But yours were not correct noun phrases. In fact "Signing Contract Ceremony" should be changed to "Contract Signing Ceremony".
5. The same thing can be often seen on Windows PC Screen such as:-
A. "Reading information 70% complete." Should it be "Reading the drive information.... or Reading on the drive information...?
B. "Defragmenting Drive C" Should it be "Defragmenting on Drive C or Drfragmenting on the Drive C?
Is it possible to explain the principle making this kind of Phrase, please.
"Reading information" is a noun phrase using gerund.
Defrag is transitive verb, which does not need any perposition.
