Lado, 

 

I'll separate all the complete thoughts, so you can see when you need new sentences.

 

“When the (article not needed) Detective Lee arrived at los angles (article and spelling) airport he was welcome (past participle) by the (article not needed) Detective Carter who ask (past tense) him a question (unecessary) do you speak any English?

 

Detective Lee was quite (quiet)

 

and he (Detective Carter) asks again(,) but Lee remains quite (quiet)

 

This next part I am not sure about.  I think you may need to put it before the explanation of what the text says. "according to the text attending involves attention to listen.” ??

 

Maybe something  like this:

According to the text, when Detective Lee arrived at the Los Angeles airport he was welcomed by Detective Carter who asked: "do you speak any English?" Detective Lee was quiet.  Detective Carter asks again, but Lee remains quiet.
