    I've corrected misspellings in the Latin. Perhaps:

    1.Quid corpus tuum sub aqua tenet?

    What is holding your body under the water? / What is your body holding under the water?

    (It's unclear whether "quid" or "corpus tuum" is the subject of the verb "tenet" [is holding])

    2.Captivi, qui ante portam positi erant, liberati sunt.

    The prisoners, who had been placed in front of the gate / door, have been freed.

    (Two passive voice verbs: "positi erant" [had been placed], third-person plural pluperfect indicative passive of pono, I place, and "liberati sunt" [have been freed], third-person plural perfect indicative passive of libero, I free)

    3.Cur praemium puero qui aberat dedisti?

    Why have you given a reward to the boy who was absent?

    ("Dedisti" [you have given] is the second-person singular perfect indicative active of do, I give)

    4.Qui puer verbis boni viri non permotus est?

    What boy has not been excited by the words of a good man?

    (Another passive voice verb: "permotus est" [has been excited] is third-person singular perfect passive indicative of permoveo, I excite)
