Imposed Lines/Ghosted Planes: Try to reduce the fraying at the end, practice by doing smaller lines then increase them in increments as a warmup

Also try to not overshoot your lines, your last 2 drawings are great (Imposed lines and Ghosted planes)

Your Ellipses look a bit messy, don't redraw them too often, maybe try to figure out if drawing by the wrist/arm/shoulder (but in general, practice shoulder) is better or change the direction/start point

Maybe try to practice more accurate ghosting (the redlines - perspective exercise - are there to help you to be more accurate)

You need to be able to estimate VP's (not perfectly) in the future and the upcoming 250 box challenge

Thank you very much for your advice! I will take them into account

It's also more than that - it's a hand-picked recommendation of something I've used myself. If you're interested, here is a full list.
Staedtler Pigment Liners

Staedtler Pigment Liners

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
