Are these sentences right? Sorry you are late for the plane it is already off. The doctor came into the chamber to ask after the patient’s health. The teacher could not compel the pupils silence.

Your meaning is clear in each case, but the first two sentences are not how a native English speaker would say it. Sorry, you are too late; the plane has already taken off The doctor came into the room to ask after the patient's health The third sentence is fine , particular in the written word, although it probably isn't what someone would say in normal day to day speech. The teacher was unable to make the students keep quiet.
