  1. "1. I was in prison for seven years," said Mr. Easton. "What for?" asked Miss Fairchild. Mr. Easton answered, " Actually, I made fake money and was arrested by the police officer." "Really? What a pity!" said Miss Fairchild.
    The underlined part asks the real question! "What were you in prison for?" (or "What did you do to be sent to prison?"

    2. 'I was in prison for seven years," said Mr. Easton. "What do you mean?" asked Miss Fairchild. Mr. Easton answered, " Actually, I wasn't a police officer." "I knew it, but that's OK. People make mistakes." said Miss Fairchild.
    The underlined part doesn't make sense.
