    2. The rice was strewn all over the fire place fireplace. Fine with "fireplace" as one word.
    3. The rice strewn all over the fire place fireplace. No. "The rice strewn" doesn't make sense.
    4. Her neighbouring country is India on the west. Not natural. We don't refer to "Her neighbouring country" and we usually say "to the west".
    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my comments above. Try number 4 again.

    A note about your thread title - you called it "any" which is OK because "any" appears in your first sentence. However, it is a little abrupt to say "check and correct my sentences". We like the word "please" in this forum. You could have called your thread title "any" and then made "Please look at my sentences and tell me if they are correct" the first sentence of your post.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
