I apologise for not answering your question in whole, but I'm dead tired!
As for the first one:
Student or Learner
1) are bookkeeper and accountant the same?
2) Am I right if I say:" You can avoid the risk of obsesity when you take in less food"?
3) What is the English for "the quality of the road" in this context: "If I could change one important thing about my country, I would improve the quality of the roads, there are too many potholes on the street. " Does the sentence sound OK?
4) Does this sentence sound right:" Too many people have lost their lives as well as properties in that deluge?". I wonder if there are any word which can replace "properties" here.

so can I say: While some lost their lives, some lost their properties in the flood?
Yes, you can, or "some lost their homes in the flood".
Some lost their lives, while others lost their homes (or property).
