Quite easy

1. Who is (Who's) : For characters (e.g. man) unlike whose that has a possession effect on characters.
2. Toward - obviously, to that (direction or similar) and towards may vary of act similar to the meaning of toward.
3. Their : (Use in reference to third person pronoun) and there, takes the direction/location effect in the sentence.
4. Still/motionless vs books/some school stuff.
5. Asking information vs Getting information. (Somewhat similar)
6. Hi Jane! What happened? There is no way that cat would get away. Oh wait! Kitten on the loose (You get it anyways, loose)... If you understand lost, lose should be easy. You can lose a championship title. Broken/care free* vs not having/not gaining possession of*
7. It's and its... It is (shortened) and its(possessed/belong)
8. Defense and defence; Defense (could be used as a legal term) and defence; Protect/Shield/guard. Somewhat similar too.
9. What spice it up vs a pleasant gesture, usually said.
10. Breathe (action, e.g. breath in slowly) and breath ( air taken in)

Let me try:
who's and whose: who's is a short form of who is e.g who is that ? whose owner e.g whose book is it .
their and there: their: belonging e.g their books, and there : distance e.g the book is there

Nothing difficulty about knowing their difference. But this generation don't care about homonym and they don't like been corrected. This is the simple reason why this problem persist. Op, other examples include:
Tent tenth
Altar alter
Advise advice
Sight cite site
Your you're

A different example is has and as. A particular part of the country use has instead of as.

lose is the verb form of loss which means to miss something, loose is the opposite of tight! E.g1.wonderr has to be careful so has not to lose his purse.2 Wonder is wearing his belt loose on his waist grin

It shows you are not getting younger.
After your education, then when you start working, marriage and family responsibility, with time you begin to forget basic elements in many subjects.
It is natural especially when you are not working in the teaching sector.

Who still remembers formulae in mathematics?
Spelling will become an issue too

Non sense, English is not our language. India was colonised by the British. If you go to India today they speak native indian language but here we carry English on our head and brag about it. Even the average English man doesn't understand what you wrote, they just speak the language
