    Venkat, only one of your sentences ends with a punctuation mark, and that sentence is incorrect.

    This is the second long list of sentences you have asked us to check. As far as I can see you haven't made any effort to correct your mistakes in the last lot yet.

    None of the first nine is correct, even if punctuation is added.
    These two are possible, but 'instead of' or 'in place of' would be far more natural. They would also be more natural if you began with the main clause.

    10. In lieu of tea give me milk.
    11. In lieu of this DVD please bring another DVD.

    None of the others is correct.

    Try again with just two or three sentences. A list of 19, none of them totally correct, deters many of us from offering help.

    I would put a comma in each of those two sentences.
