    Some of the Grammar rules compositions

    Hello
    Please check if I'm using these adverbs correctly, those are my own sentences:

    Compound sentences with coordinators:



    Most people spend their summer time in the beach, for they can't stand the hot weather.


    Most students don't have much free time, nor do they succeed to accomplish all the tasks given to them.


    Some people don't take care of their health, nor do they exercise or eat healthy food.


    The instructor was very upset, for only few students had finished their homework.


    Every person should reduce the amount of fat in their diets, or they risk getting serious health problems.


    Internet has huge positive impact in our lives, yet in some ways, it reduces the number of family discussions.




    Conjunctive adverbs:


    Everyone should have their own plans; otherwise, they will be part of others' plans.


    Elderly people are an important part of a society; furthermore, young should benefit from their presence by learning from their experiences.


    People have different interests and various preferences; hence, they should help each other and learn from each other.

    Elderly people are an important part of society. Furthermore, young people can benefit from the experiences of their elders by learning what has succeeded and what has failed.
