Hi teachers,

Additonal infomation: Merrick can't walk very well. He needs help, but the doctor didnt realise it at first.

For a minute he stood by the door of the cab and said nothing. Then he hit the cab with his stick.

Merrick:

Doctor: Then I understood. There were three steps up into the cab, and he could not get up them.

According to the context, could it be an appropriate question an answer?

Why Did Merrick hit the cab?

Because of the steps.

Thanks in advance.

He needed help getting up the steps.

RandomGuyThank you for your 'help'.

Tenacious LearnerBarbaraPAThank you very much for your suggestion.

TS

Tenacious LearnerA better question would be "Why didn't Merrick get right into the cab?"

enoonThank YOU for this one and for the reasoning too.

Of course the answers remain the same:

a) He needed help getting up the steps.

b) To let the doctor know he needed help.
