Need help for a Language-related Science Project

Hello! I'm usually a lurker on this sub, but I thought it would be a good idea to post my request here. I apologize if this isn't an appropriate post for this sub.

My child is working on her science project, "A.I. Translators." Please take a few minutes to read the following translations and reply with your opinion of the best translation. Your response should have the number of the phrase and the letter corresponding to the "best" translation, ex: 1A, 2B, 3C. Hope that makes sense. TIA!
