1. Students are not expected to identify prepositional phrases in this exercise, but note that if they were, many students might end this phrase at "time." "Past," however, is a post-positioned adjective that modifies "time" and thus can be considered part of the phrase.
2. Because "used  to" is considered a helping verb, some students may analyze this as the "to" being part of the verb phrase and "him" as a direct object.
3. This is a clause construction that you will probably not find in a grammar textbook. The preferred KISS explanation is to see it as an interjection, but it could also be considered an adverb to "have got to do." (See KISS Level 3.2.3 - Interjection? Or Direct Object?)
4. "Citizen" is a retained direct object after the passive verb. (See KISS Level 5.7 - Passive Voice and Retained Complements.)
