1.  It should be “necklaces”
2.  It should be “entertain”.
3.  It should be “efficient”.
4.  It should be “complicated”.
5.  Its should be "investment".
6.  The right spelling – ambiguous
7.  The right word – consumption
8.  It should the ‘raised’ in place of ‘risen’
9.  The right spelling – entrepreneurship
10.  ‘Harmless’ is an adjective describing the effects of ‘Caffeine’ which is the noun. But there is an implicit verb in the sentence-affect which although is not directly used, has an implicit meaning. There will therefore be an adverb too in the sentence. Relative should then be replaced by the adverb ‘relatively’.
11.  Impossible ‘for’ is the correct usage.
12.  ‘In charge of’ will mean that the baby was the boss of the elderly lady. The sentence should mean that the elderly lady is in charge, the right use will be ‘in the charge of’ which means under charge or protection of.
13.  It should be "tissue".
14.  One is a singular adjective so ‘scientist’ is the right number for the noun, not scientists.

15.  No correction required.
