Here Adiyen would like add a few remarks.

4) AanandAvahatwam means ability to cause Aananda or joy to the devotees.
That is what Nrusimhar caused in all the devas and rishis by appearing
suddenly to kill Hiranya. (Aavaha =  creating or producing)

5)  Inakotisankaashatwam - Ina is Soorya or The Sun. That is nrusimhar has
the effulgence of a crore of Suns. blinding the eyes of viewers.

9)  Agatita Gadana saamarthya -  Actual word is aGhatitha  Ghatanaa
saamarthyam - which is the ability to make something happen, that has
not happened before, that has been unprecedented. Never had He come out of
a pillar before.  That He made possible now.

10) Sathya yEva Phalapradatwam - Actually it is - sadya Eva phalapradatwam
that is capable of giving fruit immediately (sadya: like in sadyOjaata) on
the spot.

 There is another great sloka on Ahobila nrisimhar

ahO veeryam ahO Sauryam ahO bAhuparAkramam!
nArasimham param deivam ahO balam ahO balam!

Adiyen dasan
