These are the numbers you got wrong, with the letter showing the correct answer:

10a This is the "past in the past" so needs PAST PERFECT tense

13b Past action with present effect. PRESENT PERFECT tense

14b Ditto

16b wish + COULD

17c This is the "past in the past" so needs PAST PERFECT tense

19b IN is the correct preposition after "the point ___ doing sthg"
