    Could you proofread these questions and answers?

    Hi teachers,
    According to this contex: (It is from a CD)
    Well, sometimes we do, sir, yes. But it’s difficult, you see, sir, because of the police. The police don’t like us, you see, sir. So we can’t stay in a town very long. We usually move every week.
    Yes, I see. Well, anyway, Mr …er?
    Silcock, sir. Simon Silcock.
    Yes, well, Mr Silcock, I’m a doctor at the London Hospital. My name is Dr Treves. I think this … er … this man Joseph Merrick is very interesting, and I would like to see him at the hospital. I want to look at him more carefully, you see.
    Yes sir, I see. But how can he get to the hospital? It’s going to be difficult.
    Why, man? The hospital’s not far from here.

    Are these questions and answers suitable?
    a) Did Merrick attract the doctor's interest? Yes, he did.
    b) What were the doctor's plans? To look at him more carefully.
    c) What seemed to be the problem? To get to the hospital.

    Thanks in advance.

    I would prefer:

    What seemed to be the problem? How to get to the hospital.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
