Sorry, Hermione and Farid

1. "...he had fallen

down..." or "...he fell

down..." should be the right one. "...has fell

..." is wrong because the auxiliary verb "has" comes with a past participle (=fallen

). Then, using "has" instead of "had" is inappropriate because the sentences are in past form (indication: the use of past verbs "rode", "was entering", and "didn't suffer").  To me, the best answer is "fell

down". We don't really need to use the past perfect tense (=had fallen

) unless we want to stress that one event/action happened before the other. e.g. "He had fallen

down before I could grab

him." or "When I arrived

, everybody had gone

to sleep."

3. It's the similar case to that of No. 1. Using "has" instead of "had" is also inappropriate because the sentences are in past form (indication: the use of past verbs "fired" and "kept"). So, the right one should be "had

been reminded"

5. "was very starving" sounds unusual. Some adjectives cannot/should not be combined with adverbs of degree like "very" and "so". These adjectives  (such as "starving", "perfect", "excellent", "superb", etc.) are called non-gradable adjectives. "Starving" itself means "very hungry"; therefore, we don't say "very starving". Just say "I was starving".
