Delhi has a pretty humid climate. So in addition to giving it filtered sunlight (placing it under a decently dense canopy of a tree), also check the water levels. Don't underwater, but also don't over water the tree. To add on to what @Bamboo said, you'll have to play it by ear. If the leaves are wilting and the soil has decent moisture, it probably needs ...

Keep them out of hot direct sunlight until they are bigger and more robust - a little early morning or evening sun should do no harm. When they are bigger, you will likely need to pot them up into something larger, and exposure to sunlight should be reasonably gradual (not in midday sun for the first week or so) to give them time to acclimatise.

Yucca is easily propagated by cuttings, but there is a limit of how big the cutting can be. As I understand you correctly, you cut off the whole plant (with a lot of foliage) from its roots. The cutting (the whole plant) is too large. It takes time before new roots will appear, and in the meantime the foliage will die because of lack of water. You can try ...

To be on the safe side, best to assume that the "root rot" may be phytophthera, which is a common fungal disease that will kill a susceptible plant very quickly, usually in wet conditions. If hoping to replant in the same spot, certain precautions are necessary. There are fungicidal drenches that can be used, but those can cause other problems. ...

I would transplant the chrysanthemum to another spot in the garden in full sun (at least 6 hours of direct sunshine). Without a picture I can't be sure, but it sounds like the plant may be a bit leggy which is often an indication that a plant needs more sunshine and is straining to reach it. I have read about people moving mums into a pot for the winter, but ...

Not a problem at all. Start with the seedlings that stand pretty much alone, widely spaced from the others. With those done, focus on groups and try to remove a group as a cluster with soil intact from the pot and lay the bundle down sideways/horizontally. Then carefully tease out individual seedlings one at a time from the bundle using thumb and one finger ...
