    The first 3 are correct, though please note my other corrections in red. #4 is odd. The word should be either "aftereffects" or "after-effects" - it's a single noun so I don't consider "after" to be a preposition. It's simply half of the noun. If that was a test question, it was a bad one.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The words are not italicised; they are in bold.

    I wrote these sentences from a Grammar book.

    That book, first published in 1935, was based on an earlier work. Even though it has been updated from time to time, it is not a reliable guide for modern English.

    That used to be a prescribed grammar textbook in schools. It can't be that bad.
