@gowthamant,
World shouldn't be capitalised

To should be of

Rules shouldn't be capitalised

In should be on

Don't should be doesn't

Given only those options Gow I'm flummoxed. Its logic is flawed. Two possible meanings: (a) God's wish but nullified by Satan's activities

(b) Regardless of the latter's evil intent, everyone at times has a little; in other words, …must have at least some happiness

My reaction is much the same as above. "The best to the world…." makes no sense at all. We'd have to know exactly what's meant

Also open to interpretation. Our first reaction is, as Hinge says above, that "Rules" shouldn't be cap. However the sentence is perfectly okay if "Capitalization Rules," for instance, is the title of an article or the chapter in a book

It's pretty clear per Hinge, "don't" should be "doesn't"-- unless you permit the collo

@Lustig Andrei,
Yea Andy in a couple of cases did I carry my response beyond the requirements of the OP but only because I thought it might be of interest

If not I can only apologize most profusely

I have to agree tho that I do get carried away with this stuff

@dalehileman,
That is to say Andy I don't at all disagree with Hinge, just speculating on a couple of points not entirely clear
