Hi teachers,
He’s got a nice face. That’s why. I saw his picture on the television. I’m an old woman and I can read people’s faces.
So who did murder the President, then? Felix asked.
I don’t know, Marta said. You’re the policeman. You go and find the murderer. But I can tell you one thing. You can begin with the new President. He’s got a murderer’s face.

1. How Did Marta know Alex was a nice young man?
Because she saw her face on TV and she could read people's faces.
2. Where did Marta believe Felix should start his search for the murderer?
With the new President. / He should start it with the new President.

I'm not really sure about this one. It could be confusing with the information that follows, 'But I can tell you one thing. You can begin with the new President. He’s got a murderer’s face.
3. What did Marta tell Felix to do? She told him to go and find the murderer.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Mister Micawber,
Thank you so much for your corrections.
I may be wrong, but does 'You go and find the murderer' sound like a suggestion? It sounds like an order, doesn't it?

Hello TS.
Thinking Spain1. How Did Marta know Alex was a nice young man?Because she saw her his face on TV and she could read people's faces.

I wouldn't start an answer to a how-question with Because.
Suggestion:
-How did Marta know Alex was a nice young man? She saw his picture on the television and felt he had got a nice face.
-Why did Marta think Alex was a nice young man? Because he had got a nice face.

2. Where did Marta believe Felix should start his search for the murderer?With the new President. / He should start it with the new President.
I'm not really sure about this one. It could be confusing with the information that follows, 'But I can tell you one thing. You can begin with the new President. He’s got a murderer’s face.’

Note: I'm not sure about the use of where in that question.. .
Suggestion:
How did Marta believe Felix should start his search for the murderer? With the new president.

3. What did Marta tell Felix to do? She told him to go and find the murderer. Emotion: yes
