    The eighteenth century constitutes a distinct period in the history of Russian culture.


    Восемнадцатый столетие составил периоде/о отличный на историяом и русский культура.

    Explanation:

    Despite the fact that "constitutes" was in present, I considered it past because 18th century is past.
    "Distinct period" is accusative given that it is direct object so I ended it either with e or o.
    "in the history of Russian culture" is a prepositional phrase. Hence, I ended the noun in accordance with what the grammer book instructed.Thank you very much for your help in advance.

    But russians doesn't speak so. Maybe, this will be better:

    Восемнадцатый век ознаменовался расцветом русской культуры.

    The eighteenth century constitutes a distinct period in the history of Russian culture.  -  XVIII век - это особый период в истории русской культуры. (I think that would be the meaning of 'distinct')
