This is incorrect as Romeo is exiled and Tybalt kills Mercutio. Furthermore, Romeo kills Tybalt. Romeo and Juliet dying are at the very end, and they are the resolution in which the feud is resolved. This is a tragedy where death resolves the past.

Shouldn't the correct answerbe the resolution rather than being the climax?

I believe that Romeo getting exiled is the climax and definitely not their deaths as that is the end of the book and is the conclusion/resolution, while Romeo getting banished is the turning point because it leads to their deaths, and changes everything

Sorry, but this is the resolution NOT the cimax. The climax is actually Romeo killing Tybalt,

The deaths of Romeo and Juliet in the tomb

Remember our Elements of Plot mountain? We said that Romeo and Juliets deaths were what we reached at the top.
