Plato's Republic questions?

I really, really need some help with these questions. I would greatly appreciate it. Please.

Questions:

BOOK II:

A) How does a state come into being? (What actually is a state?)

B) Why do citizens need a state? (a state is a synonym for a government)

C) What kind of state (government) is the best?

BOOK III:

A) What is the best type of education for the leaders of the state?

B) What is the role of censorship in this state?

NOTE: I did read the book, and re-read it, but I really need some help. Thanks.
