Are they idiomatic

Dear teachers,

I am sorry I didn't explain my purpose clearly. What I'd like to know is whether the translations are idiomatic or not. Could you please common on them?

Thank you.

Jiang

I have no idea about number two- we don't use the word peasant, much less categorise them.

6- I don't see what a Discipline inspector does.

7- I don't know the structure,so it makes little sense to me.;-(
