    Default Re: asking people

    The only problem is the omission of spaces between words. Otherwise it reads OK. I've marked the missing spaces with this symbol: ^.

    We asked people such as the PE^teachers, the teacher who works in the health center, students, friends, and family.
    The questions were
    a. Have you ever had trouble^sleeping?
    b. What do you think
    ^was the reason for your insomnia?
    c. How did you solve
    ^this problem?
