 7: He will is the formal way of saying he'll.
You said: false
You put the apostrophe in to replace the w and i. 
 8: Its is the informal way of saying It is.
You said: false
Well done. The way to write it is informally is it's. The only time you write its is when you are talking about something that belongs to someone or something - e.g: -The cat's eating its food' 
 9: This sentence is correct: Jupiter's moons are very small.
You said: true
You're right, this sentence is correct. The s on Jupiter shows it owns the moons so it needs an apostrophe. The s on moons shows there is more than one moon, so there's no need for an apostrophe here. 
 10: This sentence is correct: The sun's hot today.
You said: true
Well done, this sentence is correct. This is an informal way of writing - 'the sun is hot today'. 
11: 'phone is an informal way of writing telephone.
You said: false
'Phone is an informal way of writing telephone. The apostrophe shows that some letters have been missed out. 
 12: I'd have liked that is an informal way of writing I could have liked that.
You said: false
Well done. this sentence isn't correct. - 'I'd have liked that' is an informal way of writing - 'I would have liked that'. 
13: This sentence is correct: The books' spines were split.
You said: false
This sentence is correct. There is more than one book, so the apostrophe goes after the s - books'. 
 14: This sentence is correct: You're teas getting cold.
You said: true
The sentence should be - 'your tea's getting cold'. You're is an informal way of saying you are. You should use the word your here. 
  15: This sentence is correct: I got married in '69 in my sister's dress.
You said: false
Bad luck! '69 is an informal way of writing the date 1969, it shows where the numbers are missing. Sister's is correct.

no problem hanes, we start everything from the first, right?
The four Reliances
1st,rely on the spirit and meaning of the teachings, not on the words;
2nd,rely on the teachings, not on the personality of the teacher;
3rd,rely on real wisdom, not superficial interpretation;
And 4th,rely on the essence of your pure Wisdom Mind, not on judgmental perceptions
