Dear native English speakers,
I have to create a new exercise.
Could you proofread my sentences?

1 What can develop countries do to help developing countries?

2 The speed limit is 50 kilometers per hour.

3 Jane always orders a healthy meal when we eat out.

4 Even a small donation would help.

5 The trade imbalance between developing countries and developed countries is a big problem.

6 It was raining heavily, and Mary suggested calling a taxi.

7 In 1996 we moved to Boston, where my grandparents lived.

8 "When I was a child, I lived in Austria for a while." "What age were you then?"

9 The donation will be sent to such developing countries as Myanmar and Cambodia.

10 This food is certified as healthy by the group.

11 A donation of twenty yen per meal will be sent to these countries.

12 The money is used to pay for school lunches.

13 (a) What did you order at the restaurant? (b) What did you order in the restaurant?

14 The man didn't pay for the lunch.

15 This food is certified as safe.

16 (a) More than three million yen was sent to these developing countries.
   (b) More than three million yen were sent to these developing countries.

17 I see the same person here every morning.

Thanks in advance.

This might come from stylistic preference, but speaking in English, I've always used "yen" as a mass noun (so, version A).
