Sentence number 1 needs an adverb (late) instead of an object (la tarde).
The rest of the sentences are correct, except that some of them need a subject pronoun (because the third-person conjugation is ambiguous without one).

5, 6, and 9 are ambiguous as Rusty said. They are each missing one word.
