    I took the tickets from him. <- This is fine

    Whom are you meeting tonight? <- I sould suggest "With whom...

    He questioned my movtives. <- This is fine, except that movtive should be motives, but I'm sure that was a typo anyway.
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.

    You need a QM (question mark) at the end of ghat sentence, thus: "Could you tell me if these three sentences are grammatically correct please?"

    (Many native speakers would say, "Who are you meeting tonight?")
