    Check your original source for accuracy. This phrase is gibberish.

    5. I explained_(to)__him that it was the custom _in _ England to wash
    one's car each weekend.

    6. It is always easy to find fault_(among)__another person. You could (at)___least
    find_(out)_why she is so often late_(at)_classes.
    Keep trying to correct #6. You are halfway there!!!
