I agree about # 55, 52and 55 but I don't understand why "before" in the line 48 is wrong?
We say "I have never been there before, I have never seen such thing before.."
The "before" is superfluous, kotelly, and normally only found in informal speech. "I have never been there" and "I have never seen such a thing" both work fine without it, as does "I had never seen such an enormous crowd." If a word does nothing, cut it out!
