Since many of the above sentences are similar in their syntax, or their arrangement, using some as examples should serve you for the remainder of the others.

As a notation, remember, too, that the articles a, an, and the are always considered adjectives.

1. The basketball team is playing Northwestern High School tomorrow.

The = adjective;    basketball = adjective;   team = noun;  is playing (verb phrase) is = helping, or auxiliary verb; playing = present participle [is playing = the present progressive tense)

Northwestern High School = proper noun

tomorrow = adverb of time

2. My dog has a really big jaw.

My = possessive pronoun, used as an adjective; dog = common noun; has = transitive verb; a = article; adjective ;really = adverb of degree;  jaw = common noun

3. Hitler was the most dangerous man in the world.

Hitler = proper noun;  was = linking verb; the = adjective; most = adverb of degree; dangerous = adjective; man = common noun; in = preposition; the = adjective; world = common noun.

5. The boy was running and slipped on a banana peel.

The = adjective; boy = common noun; was = helping verb; running = participle used as a main verb in present progressive tense; and = conjunction; slipped = intransitive verb, a main verb, part of compound predicate; on = preposition; a = adjective; banana = adjective (It is actually a common noun used as an adjective in this sentence); peel = common noun.
