An Inspector Calls

How should Gerald tell his story to the inspector?

I am reading An Inspector Calls in English at School as part of my GCSE and I have to answer this question as a practise for a exam.

I am not sure by what my teacher/ the test paper means by this question. To me it doesn't make any literal sense.

Please help

I agree, the question is a bit confusing. I would advise Gerald to tell his story honestly. To lie will only alienate Sheila, who for all intents and purposes has agreed to marry him, even though she knows he was involved with another woman the summer before. Dishonesty, will only cause her more consternation and open old wounds.
