Choose the correct option
John's not afraid of anybody.
John doesn't afraid of anybody.

Afraid isn't a verb but an adjective, and we generally use it with the verb to be.

Next
Mike had plenty of work to do.
Mike had plenty work to do.

Plenty isn't an adjective, but a noun meaning a large number or amount. The adjective is plentiful: Oranges are cheap now because they are plentiful

Next
I've seen both of them.
I've seen and the two of them.

Never say and the two instead of both. Also avoid and the three, four, etc. Say, all three, four, etc.

Next
Let me do and the next exercise.
Let's also do the next exercise.
Also possible:
Let me do the next exercise too.

And is a conjunction, and can only join similar forms of speech: He came and sat down. We can't use it instead of the adverbs also and too.

Next
She said, 'You are a coward.'
She said, 'You are a coward boy.'

Coward (= one without courage) is the noun. The adjective is cowardly.
