    1. Agreeing to sell mostof its assets and eventually is phasing out the business, the firm will be merging with a newly formed corporation.

    = Agreeing to sell most of its assets and eventually phase out the business, the firm will be merging with a newly formed corporation.

    ~ because "is phasing" is in present tense but the sentence shows it is in future tense by "will be" therefore it should be phase out

    2. The plans announced for the proposing plant were met with enthusiasm by the unemployed public hoping for job opportunities.

    = The plans announced for the proposed plant were met with enthusiasm by the unemployed public hoping for job opportunities.

    ~ because "proposing" is in the present tense but the sentence is in the past tense shown by the word "met" therefore "proposing" becomes proposed"

    3. Overheating badly, the motorist realized his engine could suffer serious damage if he didn't pull off the road and stop.

    = Badly overheated, the motorist realized his engine could suffer serious damage if he didn't pull off the road and stop.

    ~ again, overheating is in the present tense and the sentence clearly shows it's in the past tense

    4. Dismayed by the hotel inexplicably canceling our reservations, we found ourselves were frantically calling all over town to reserve other rooms.

    = Dismayed by the hotel inexplicably canceling our reservations, we found ourselves frantically calling all over town to reserve other rooms.

    ~ "were" implies past tense, but the sentence is in present tense

    5. Employees previously dissatisfied are now feeling much better with Human Rosources offered new benefits and improving their jobs.

    = Employees previously dissatisfied are now feeling much better with Human Rosources offerering new benefits and improving their jobs.

    ~ employees were not offered new benefits in the past so it should be in present tense like "improving".

    參考資料: me, hope that helps!
