2) My father likes to elicit information from me . Omit the definite article.

Are those sentences correct?

Hi teachers,

I [STRIKE]do[/STRIKE] have a question [STRIKE]for[/STRIKE] about those words.

Is it correct if I say:

1) Our teacher gave us a concise lecture.
2) My father likes to elicit [the] information from me.
3) The student's performance ties in with his family situation and [STRIKE]life style[/STRIKE] lifestyle.

Are those sentences correct?

Thank you.

Please note my amendments above in red - spelling, punctuation, capitalisation and spacing.

I wouldn't describe a lecture as concise, I would simply call it short.
Whether you need the article in number 2 depends on the context.
I'm not sure how someone's performance can tie in with their lifestyle but if it can, then the sentence is fine.
