    1. This is not a paragraph. It is mostly a list.
    2. You spelled "McDonald's" three times. Why did you spell it "McDonald" once?
    3. What sort of property would you analyze in #2?
    4. Why is the article "the" used before McDonald's?
    5. What does the first sentence mean? How does one investigate customers?
