Each furniture item is wrong. Wealth has a broader meaning. It includes many things. No substitute is needed.

Nope. I am not wrong there. Its THAN, not THEN.
Father's money can be abused. If the sentence is not wrong, there is absolutely no need to change anything. If you change anything needlessly, paper checker will know that the candidate was not confident enough and he has changed it because he believed that something has to be changed anyway.

What if we use "No sooner did we leave the shop than it began to rain"?
and is it correct to say "All the furniture in this display is on sale for half price."
