I think the instructions ("correct") are a bit vague as there are many ways to correct a sentence. Anyway, here's what I suggest :

1) For the discussion see the below section of the book.
my answer : For the discussion see the above section of the book. - or - For the discussion see the below section in the book. (I´m not sure how to correct this one)
For the discussion see the section of the below.

2) He felt weakly after the sickness.
my answer : He felt weak after the sickness.

He felt weak after being sick/ill.

3) They will likely come by bus.
my answer : They are likely to come by bus. or "They will probably come by bus."

4) The train was fastly stuck in the snow.
my answer : The train was fast stuck in the snow.

5) The arrow fell a short distance shortly of the target.
my answer : The arrow fell a short distance off/from the target.

6) He was just a low bank clerk.
my answer : He was just a lowly junior bank clerk.

7) The situation was very annoying me.
my answer : The situation was very annoying to me.

The situation was annoying me a lot.

8) His clean-shaved head was visible from the distance.

my answer : I don´t know how to correct this sentence.

9) My aunt is dear.
my answer : My aunt is dear to me.

10) My brother is elder than me.
my answer : My brother is older than me.

11) How slow is your new car ?
my answer : How fast is your new car ?

12) This is the point of lesser importance, or, the less problem.
my answer : This is the/a point of lesser importance or (the less problem)(??).

13) Some farther information is needed.
my answer : Some further information is needed.

14) He was aware of that there will be many problems.
my answer : He was aware of the problems there will be .

15) You´ve just come back from Britain. Like what was it ?
my answer : You´ve just come back from Britain. Was it was like ?

Again, I'll say "correcting" without any further instructions is not easy, unless you're totally free to do so.

Bye bye !

Hello.
Brettdallen has given good corrections, and as he stated, many of them can be corrected more than one way. There are just a few that you can improve.
1) For the discussion see the below section of the book.
my answer : The problem is that below is being used as if it were an adjective, but it is an adverb.

4) The train was fastly stuck in the snow.
my answer : The train was fast stuck in the snow. Wrong order.

5) The arrow fell a short distance shortly of the target.
my answer : The arrow fell a short distance off the target. or...The arrow fell short...

8) His clean-shaved head was visible from the distance.
my answer : Try clean shaven.

14) He was aware of that there will be many problems.
my answer : He was aware of the problems there will be . You could start with 'He was aware that' but use would instead of will.

Sherry
