[color=blue]The old president wanted to change things in this country, but he couldn’t. The police and the army stopped him.
My questions and its possible answers:
a) What was the old president’s wish?
To change thing in his country.
b) Why wasn’t he able to do that? (Is it ‘it’ or ‘that’ at the end? I prefer ‘that’.)
Because the police and the army stooped him.
Thanks in advance.

Is it necessary or optional for that one to write ‘He wanted’ at the beginning of the answer?
I am aware that besides my answers, there are others that are perfectly possible.
It’s optional. It gives a more complete sentence.
Thanks for your help. I thought it was, but I didn’t know the reason.
Now I do.
