'I'm sorry,' I said. But I would like to see him now. I have no time tomorrow - I have a lot of work to do. But I can give you more than two pence.
Could you check this question according to the previous text:
How much could the doctor give to the man if he could see the elephant man at that time?
Thanks in advance.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
One more question please:
Why I shouldn't use 'to' in the sentence below? Is it because there is no object? Like in, 'Give it to him'.
How much money could the doctor give
tothe man if he could see the elephant man at that time?

The 'to' is redundant and unnatural.
Ems's answer –"How much [money] was the doctor prepared to pay to see the elephant man straight away?" is ideal for your purposes.
It's not a rule—it's more natural to omit 'to'.
