May I know whether the following sentences are grammatical?
1. I take a bottle of water to go to school every day.
That's grammatical, but consider, e.g.,
I take a bottle of water (with me) to school every day.

2. Apple is very good for our health.
That's grammatical (albeit unusual) if you're referring to the IT company Apple.
Otherwise, say: "Apples are very good for our health."

3. My house is in a muddle.
Okay.

4. There is a big puddle in the garden.
Okay.

5. The table wobbled and spilled the water to the floor.
That's grammatical but not natural. Try, e.g.,:
The table wobbled, and the water in the jug spilled onto the floor.

6 She sat on the bed and cuddled the baby.
Okay.

For sentence 5, can I say:
His feet wobbled and could not walk properly.

Thanks.

Feet don't walk; people do. You could say He wobbled so badly that he couldn't walk properly.

You could say that his feet shook.
