    2 Is the sentence each one of us correct? "each one of us" is correct, but it's not a sentence.
      

    3 Which sentence is correct?
    These sweaters are too small for me.Would you show me another one
    These sweaters are too small for me.Would you show me another Both are correct. 

    4  Which sentence is correct?
    He made us TO be able to listen, see, feel, and speak.
    He made us be able to listen, see, feel, and speak

    He made us not TO be able to listen, see, feel, and speak.
    He made us not be able to listen, see, feel, and speak. None of them are correct.

    Thank you!

    I agree with bhaisahab. But how would you properly express the ideas of the fourth group of sentences? I would say,
    "He enabled us to listen..."
    "He destroyed/diminished our ability to listen..."

    Than you very much! You are a very good teacher.

    But when I saw your explaination, I got a little confused.

    Why did you use None of them are correct. rather than None of them is correct?

    Why I have this question is that my teacher told me I had to use singular when subject is nothing, something ,no one ,none, somebody, nobody when I was at school.

    Thank you!

    By the way, why none of them are correct?

    Yes sorry, I should have written "is". I'm not that good a teacher, I make mistakes.

    He made us not TO be able to listen, see, feel, and speak.
    He made us not be able to listen, see, feel, and speak.

    You could perhaps write: "He made us unable/caused us to be unable to listen..." but they don't sound great either.
    "He stopped us from being able..." is also possible.
