Help me with trouble shooting assignment

Hi guys, I have here 2 troubleshooting tasks my teacher intentionally made mistakes in. One where there is a fault with the switch (I have to find out why there is no remote connection to my switch2) and the other where there are faults at the router. But I'm working on the switch task right now. Here are the different ip addresses and default gateways for the routers, switches and computers:

pc-1 ip: 172.16.99.10/28 pc-1 default gateway: 172.16.99.1

switch1 vlan: 172.16.99.2/28

router1 GigabitEthernet0 / 0: 172.16.99.1/28 router1 Serial0 / 0/0: 10.0.0.1/30

router2 GigabitEthernet0 / 0: 172.16.89.1/27 router2 Serial0 / 0/0: 10.0.0.2/30

switch2 vlan: 172.16.89.2/27 (I found this error here. It said .88 instead of .89)

pc-2 ip: 172.16.89.10/27 pc-2 default gateway: 172.16.89.1

router / pc / switch 1 is on the left side (ie in lan 1) router / pc / switch 2 is on the right side (ie in lan 2)

the left side has a subnet mask of 255.255.255.240 the right side has a subnet mask of 255.255.255.224

This is the best way I can explain it

Basically the only error I have found so far is that the wrong vlan ip was used on switch 2 and i've corrected it, but I can not find the 1 or 2 more errors that could be. Maybe someone could help here from my slightly vague description of the task. If you need more info just let me know and I'll add it. I've put some screenshots too so you can get a better picture of what i'm talking about. I can't attach the file because when i try making it a zip file it wont open/work so i just have the screenshots

okay i have done this but when i tried remote connecting both pc's to the switches it opens but then immediately says "Closed by foreign host" even though I haven't closed it. Is that normal? Does this mean it is now connected or what?

On Switch2 

use below command your issue will resolve

(config)#line vty 0 4
