    Please help me...

    I am agree/agreed to my mother .
    I am agree/agreed with the idea of selling books on high prices/costly.
    Be agree/agreed to or with...
    I am worry/worried about current situation of my country.
    Be worry/worried about....
    I am worry/worried about current economic situation in my country.

    I waved to him at dispersal/recess break time to make him attentive.

    Underlined words are correct in my opinion,but i really don't know the rule for them and if I am wrong in any way regarding prepositions or verbs so please help me regarding.

    Re: Please help me...

    If your only option is to select the word, I would select agreed for both of the first two sentences. However, there are other mistakes as well. Here is what I would say:

    I agree with my mother (or, I am in agreement with my mother)
    I agree with the idea of selling books at high prices
    Agree with (or be agreeable to)
    I am worried about the current situation in my country.
    Be worried about . . .
    I am worried about the current economic situation in my country
    I waved to him at recess to get his attention

    I'm going to say this more strongly.
    I am agree is wrong with any preposition. I would call I am agreed wrong, but perhaps others might find a way to make that right, but I can't imagine anyone could say I am agreed to my mother is right.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
