②He worked so hard and finally became the top of the company.

I would put "very hard" or just "hard".

⑤The sixteenth US President Lincoln abolished slavery in the United States.

I would put commas around "Lincoln" and call him "Abraham Lincoln"

⑥ Because of the heavy snow, our plane couldn't fly.

I would just put "we" instead of "our plane". It's not exactly true that the plane can't fly, it's that it's too dangerous for people, but that is a very natural point of speech.

Thank you very much for your help, Michael2. I really appreciate it.


②⇒He worked very hard and finally became the top of the company.

⑤⇒The sixteenth US President, Abraham Lincoln, abolished slavery in the United States.

⑥ ⇒Because of the heavy snow, we couldn't fly.

This is OK, isn't it?

How about this for 5?
President Lincoln abolished slavery in the United States.
