    Chloe's response to sentence a) is correct.

    Sentence b) should be improved. "motor-wise" isn't really an expression, and although we can deduce the meaning, this is a bad use of a made-up word.

    Better: "...had a limiting disease, in terms of motor skills"

    a) is incorrect. The syntax is wrong. It should be "Already had difficulty"

    a) Is mostly correct! just swap the words had and already to read "By age 22, Stephen Hawking already had difficulty executing voluntary body motions."

    b) Is 100% correct!
