    Are you sure you copied number 7 in Section I correctly? "... have often been resorted by" is ungrammatical.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please don't post so many questions in one thread. It will get messy as people post responses.
    I-2 -- This one doesn't sound right but apparently "sustainment" isn't liked by grammar checkers. The rest of I are okay.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
