    they are all wrong
    a. He has returned home.

    b. tell me the truth!

    c. I was stopped by police.

    but only the second is a vocabulary error, the rest is just crappy conjugation of your verbs. I would recommend revising the tenses and the grammar rules like when to double the consonant.

    C. is a vocabulary error, the other two are grammar errors. You really should know that Tony.

    I think you should indicate your opinion with your post, given that you're asking others to.
    I believe the answer is b. 'Say' should be "Tell'. The wrong word is used.
    a. is a grammatical error.
    c. is a spelling error.

    The vocabulary error is b. It should be "tell", not "say".
