Marie-Christine: #1--good; #2--another phrase, and don't change the original clause;-) #3--you need to add another independent clause to that original one;-)
#s 1 and 2--both are phrases; #3--good.
Janine: Good work:-)
Nancy: #1--a phrase is more than word;-) #s 2 and 3--these are phrases.
Tammy: #1--good; #2--another phrase; #3--good.
