    Informally, we'd be more likely to say 'sent the class home', so it could be described as formal.

    Peter will handle her preparation for the coming exam.


    The terrible storm had reduced a huge number of biuldings into rubble.


    It is very curious that only 14-year-old girls are allowed to go in.

    1. I'll make a start, but I am not sure if I will get everything just right.
    2. The original is okay.
    3. Even though the professor gave her a lot of difficult tasks, she handled it well.
    4. That is good.
    5. The terrible storm reduced a large number of buildings to rubble.
    6. I would prefer "odd" to "curious" there. Thus, I would say:
    It is very odd that ony 14-year-old girls are allowed to go in.

    I'm not really sure about the usige of "into". It was an act of instinct


    "handling" is a noun, and I'm sure that you have to use a verb.
    "will be handle" = passive (I'm sure that you have to use active)
    Inspector Dawkin will handle this case.
    Or you should say: This case will be handle by Inspector Dawkin.


    Then, why you haven't used "very"?
    "most" is the comparison of "many". many - more - most


    "... are being difficult to handle this days". It is a passiv sentence, and means that it is not easy for the customers to handle them.

    I hope that I could help you

    Kind regards,
    Dany
    Say:
    That was a mistake of mine.
    The word handling is part of the verb phrase will be handling. (The word handling can be a noun. Example: "He was criticized for his handling of the situation.")

    The word most is a superlative, not a comparative.

    Say They are difficult to handle, not They are being difficult to handle.

    Say:
    I hope that helps.
