  8. The government needs to increase funding to solve the traffic modern problems in major cities.
  9. Office accommodations sometimes makes the centre of cities and towns soulless.
  10. Music has a grand impact on people's lives, as it affects their mood.

  1. information (an uncountable noun, never add an 's'.)
  2. is ('population' is the subject, an uncountable  noun, so it is classed as singular, so needs a singular verb.)
  3. government (spelling)
  4. progress (wrong word)
  5. impact (wrong word)
  6. time (need the singular noun as 'people' is the subject which is classed as singular)
  7. on (wrong preposition)
  8. modern traffic problems (wrong order of phrase - 'modern' is the adjective, so goes before 'traffic' which describe the problems.)
  9. accommodation (an uncountable noun, no 's' EVER!)
  10. huge (wrong adjective.)
