②Did you go shopping at the ABC store on weekend?

I would say "the weekend". You can say "last weekend" without "the" but "at the" or "on the weekend"

⑧"Did Mr. White come to your house/home last night?" "Yes, he did."

I would just say "house" here. "Home" is not usually used in conjunction with "to", although "at" is normal.

Otherwise, great work!
