I have worked as an Audit Assitant in a chartered accountant firm.

I just wanted to know whether the sentence is okay. In Grammarly, it says 'in' is a critical error. I have no idea why it says so. Could you correct the sentence?

She asked her that whether she knew what had happened last week when she was on leave.

Grammarly says 'that' is a critical error. Could you explain why is 'that' is an error? Thanks.

A species is considered endangered when it is in a very high risk of extinction in the world.

The second sentence is right. It should be 'at' and not 'in'. I don't know the reason. could you explain the reason? Thanks.

We came very near to canceling the trip.

In this sentence, 'near' is an adverb. How could I understand that it is an adverb?

Our house is near the beach.

In this sentence, 'near is a preposition.

Our house is near to the beach.--> it is wrong to use 'to'.

Is there an easy way to know when near is a preposition and when it is an adverb?

The grammar book says the right sentence is:
I’m thinking of buying a new car.
But, they don't explain the reason.
