    7-There is a small partition which separates the bed from the rest of the room.
    8-He is kind to people who works work with him. (People = plural = they, therefore "work")
    9-In the gallery, there was a colorful painting who it which consisted of (or simply "shows") a group of musicians which who are involved in a performance.

    I have made amendments above.

    Remember = you need an "s" on the end of plural nouns.
    The plural of person is (usually) people.
    "Who/whom/whose" refer to people.
    "Which" refers to things.
