I'm afraid I can't possibly address all the problems and all the solutions to the problems in Treasure Island in the limited space allowed for answers; however, I can help you with the major conflict of the novel.  The major conflict is that Jim, Squire Trelawney, Dr. Livesey, Captain Smollett, and his crew are searching for a treasure that Captain Flint, an old pirate, has left buried after his death. They are challenged by Flint’s former crewmembers, who have tricked Trelawney into hiring them to help sail to Treasure Island.  There is also an excellent one page summary along with other pertinent information at the link below.  Good luck.  Brenda
