    That looks like an exercise you have to do. We don't do homework! Do you know for sure that each sentence is incorrect? If so, try to work out what is wrong in each sentence, put your suggested corrections in a post here and then we will comment.

    Thank you.

    Re: New correction

    You are right to have doubts about that.

    He was not trusted. The boy was not trusted. He was a boy who was not trusted.
    It sounds very akward to put that adjective before the noun. I don't even like the adjective "mistrusted" very much, although "mistrust" works as a noun.

    Please note that many of us are not male, so addressing us as "sir" it not appropriate.
    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.

    4- My account is debited 1000 rs. This is not wrong but "has been/was debited" is more usual.

    5-We are refunded 1000 rs. Same as #4, but with "have been/were".


    7-All the cigarettes have been smoked.

    9.He was accorded a... (Complete it suitably) This is OK as far as it goes.

    10- They were lionized .
