Plato's Republic questions?

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



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?


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.
