Tarun,

So you can learn as much as possible here, could you please share what you believe to be the right answers? Then we can come back and help with the ones you got wrong.

Good luck!

Brett

Sure ... i think this makes sense too

1)
Incorrect : Between you and I, the secretary is not a gentleman.
Correct : Between you and me, the secretary is not a gentleman.

But still this whole sentence itself sounds erroneous.

2)
Incorrect : Good students like you and he should study regularly.
Correct : Good students like you and him should study regularly.

Just wanted to confirm.

3)
Incorrect : If i were him, I would not misbehave like this.
Correct : If i were he, I would not misbehave like this.

Here i think i have answered correctly but i think there is still confusion between he/him especially when used in spoken English.

4)
Incorrect : Everyone announced one's plans in the presence of the President.
Correct : Everyone announced his/her plans in the presence of the President.

Please clear the usage of his or her.

5)
Incorrect : Every teacher and every student should do their duty.
Correct : Every teacher and every student should their duty.

Here i feel no change as indefinite pronoun every should itself take a singular pronoun but here there are two every expressions. Please clear.



Thanks
