The (whole/entire) land belongs to me. The whole land is a singular noun because it is ONE big piece of land . All these lands belong to me ( plural > many pieces of them) (Well down/bravo)! Your performance during last semester has been (great/notable/perfect) >All ok , The adjectives that can be used for the above are many > excellent , commendable ,impressive , very good ,praiseworthy etc > All applicable but different in meanings

Hi! I will give you my personal opinion." The land " is third person singular. So, its the land belongS. If you were talking about many lands , then you would say "the lands belong to me", because it is third person plural. I think well DONE and bravo, have exactly the same meaning. Notable is like outstanding, so I think it is more emphatic than great. Perfect and great is similar, but perfect would mean that there has been no mistakes. Hope it helps. Bye!
