'Strenth' is incorrectly spelled, the correct spelling is 'strength'.
2.

'Swiftly' is the adverb in this sentence as it describes how the action (running) is being performed.

Carefully stretching into the cupboard, Sarah took a sweet.
Enjoying the warm weather, the homework was done outside.
The modifier 'Enjoying the warm weather' should modify a person, not 'the homework'. So the sentence is misplaced.
