    A7 is strange. You might say "The writer had a liquid breakfast." you would never say that he had a paste in the breakfast. Does it mean "porridge" or "hot cereal"? You would also say "for breakfast" instead of "in the breakfast."
    Q8 is therefore not right. You might ask why the porridge was tasteless.

    All the others seem to be fine.
