で Vs を Vs に Vs へ: Part 3 (final)

Alright, here it is then, the last part of this exercise. I'd say it was easy for more than half but then got harder towards the end, especially regarding the difference between に & で.
#21. ヘリコプター「」乗って、空「」飛んでみたいなあ。
① で:means of transportation➡ヘリコプター.
② に: where the action takes place➡空.
① This definitely is getting harder. I think the mistake I made in ① is that 乗って means "to get on" so it doesn't work with a means here. I eventually found the answer: shows that something was done through a measure described by the preceding noun.
② を: a particles which indicates a space through which s.o. or s.t. moves. It was ultimately very specific. I'd say I understand ② a lot more than ①.
#22. あした学校「」先生「」聞いてみよう。
① Ok so is this a specific time or is like あと? I'd say に, when an action takes place.
② を: direct object.
So it was as I thought, the whole で thing. There are still things I don't get about this sentence which I'll bring up in the forums.

#23. お兄さん「①」わからない単語の意味「②」聞いたら、「辞書「③」調べてごらん」だって。
に: indirect object of 聞いたら。
② を:direct object of 聞いたら
③ で:location where the action takes place.

Comments: well, that's a boost in confidence. #21 & 22 didn't go too well.

#24. 机の上「①」あった友達の写真「②」、どこ「③」しまったのか忘れた。
に: surface where action takes place.
を: direct object of 忘れる.
に: indicates where s.t. or s.o. exists.

#25. ああ、駅ですか?あの橋「①」渡って、最初の信号「②」右「③」曲がって、その道「④」まっすぐ行くと、左のほう「⑤」ありますよ。

を: movement across a space.
に: indicates where s.t. or s.o. moves.
で: a particle which indicates location
を: same thing as ①.
に: indicates the location where something exists.

Two mistakes here. I'll ask in the forums about this one.

: location where an action takes place.
を: direct object of 出席. Man this is getting confusing. Technically it *is* a direct object but I somehow doubt that's the right answer.
で: the time limit function
を: direct object of 作ろう.

に: 加藤先生のセミナー: What is modified here is the teacher's seminar. The verb of that clause is 出席. When you want to find the direct object of a verb in English, you ask yourself the verb does "what", so attend what➡the seminar. But that's not the right answer here, に is.
に: indicates the purpose when s.o. moves from one place to another.
に: 今夜十時まで: what is modified is "by 10 o'clock". This is temporal. I guess it's a point in time where something takes place. I do think 「」 is a better answer though.

#27. パーティー「」どんなドレス「」着て行こうかしら?彼は、ブラックタイ「
に:indicates the direction of an action.
に: shows the intention, purpose of the action.
に: shows the intention, purpose of the action.
を: direct object of 着て行こう
③ で: going in black tie, so it's a "way" of going here. Pretty difficult one.

#28. 今日暖かいから、この鉢植え「を」外「に」出して、水「を」やってくれない?
: direct object of して.
: direction of an action: して
を: direct object of やって
Comments: Yes, got it. Confidence boost.

#29. のどが渇いたから、あの喫茶店「」コーヒー「」飲んでからうち「」帰りまほう。
① で:where the action takes place ⇒ 飲んで
② を:direct object of the verb ⇒ 飲んで
③ へ:movements towards/destination of ⇒ 帰りまほう

#30. このおすし「」おはし「」このお皿「」とってください。それから、この小さいお皿「」おしょうゆ「」少し入れて、わさび「」つけて食べてください。
① を: direct object
② で: method
③ に: destination of action
④ に: destination of action
⑤ を: direct object
⑥ で:method: fairly simple mistake. I figured what if it were eaten with the wasabi, it's be considered a method but it's just a simple を direct object.
