Minha contribuição:

Fiz algumas correções e então temos:

3.I have difficulty writing in English.

As expressões "have trouble" e "have difficulty" são normalmente seguidas de "verbo + ing".Antigamente, usava-se "have trouble/difficulty + in + verbo + ing", mas o "in" quase nunca é usado hoje em dia.

Hoje em dia:-->I have trouble/difficulty getting up early.(Eu tenho dificuldade para levantar cedo.)

Antes:-->I have trouble/difficulty IN getting up early.(Eu tenho dificuldade para levantar cedo.)

Bons estudos!
Maybe I've have typed the word difficulty wrong.
Thanks, I got it.
Could explain me the others cases?
Or can I chosse one more to you explain me? You are such a good teacher, that I understand all you explain!
(By the way, how can I say puxa-saco in English?) Just Kidding!
numbers 1 and 2, please! (How can I say, me dê uma luz?)

I'm waiting new contributions!
