    1) "With" is the only appropriate preposition for this sentence.

    2) Actually, I think the error in the second line is the "a". It should be "the right kind of education".
    In the third line, the "but" should be "and". I don't see a mistake in the fourth line beyond the fact that it ends
    abruptly without completing the sentence.

    3) There should be a "to" between "in" and "account".

    For 2 it is not "THE" . we need to change GIVEN with Giving. yes there is also a mistake in fourth line as well.

    "2) There are several instances to show that, given the right kind of education and opportunity, a handicapped person Could not only become a useful"


    The part in red needs to be completely rewritten for it to make any sense. The part in blue is just about acceptable.

    "3) Ayurveda takes into account the patient’s entire personality."

    "Given" is correct. It should not be changed to "Giving".

    Given the right kind of education ...
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
