      B & c

    Correct Answer
    A. Parris says that Proctor is trying to overthrow the court.
    Explanation
    Parris argues that Proctor is attempting to overthrow the court. This suggests that Parris believes Proctor is challenging the authority and legitimacy of the court proceedings, possibly in an attempt to undermine its power. Parris may see Proctor's actions as a threat to his own position and authority within the community. Additionally, Parris may view Proctor's actions as a personal attack, as Proctor may be seeking revenge against Parris for some past disagreement or conflict.

    What does Mary tell Danforth?

    • A.

      Abigail is not evil; she's just in love with Proctor.

    • B.

      The girls have been lying.

    • C.

      Tituba was responsible for their actions in the woods.

    • D.

      Abigail gave Elizabeth the doll.

    Correct Answer
    B. The girls have been lying.
    Explanation
    Mary tells Danforth that the girls have been lying. This suggests that the accusations and claims made by the girls, including Abigail, are false and fabricated. Mary's statement undermines the credibility of the girls' testimonies and casts doubt on the entire witchcraft hysteria that has gripped Salem. It implies that the girls' motivations for their actions are not rooted in truth or genuine supernatural experiences, but rather in personal vendettas or desires for attention and power.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    Why did Danforth grant Elizabeth extra time?

    • A.

      He didn't blame her for being jealous of Abigail.

    • B.

      She was trying to convince John to confess.

    • C.

      She said she was pregnant.

    • D.

      He almost believed Mary's story.

    Correct Answer
    C. She said she was pregnant.
    Explanation
    Danforth granted Elizabeth extra time because she claimed to be pregnant. This likely influenced his decision as he may have considered the potential impact on the unborn child if Elizabeth were to be executed. Additionally, the idea of executing a pregnant woman could have been seen as morally objectionable. Therefore, granting her extra time would allow for further consideration of her situation and potentially a more informed decision.

    What did the paper that ninety-one people signed say?

    • A.

      The community wanted Parris removed from service as their minister.

    • B.

      Rebecca, Elizabeth and Martha were all good, upstanding, God-loving citizens.

    • C.

      John and Elizabeth should be released.

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Rebecca, Elizabeth and Martha were all good, upstanding, God-loving citizens.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Rebecca, Elizabeth and Martha were all good, upstanding, God-loving citizens." This answer is supported by the information given in the question. The question asks what the paper that ninety-one people signed said, and the only statement mentioned in the question is about Rebecca, Elizabeth, and Martha being good, upstanding, God-loving citizens. Therefore, this statement is the content of the paper that was signed by the ninety-one people.

    What quote did Proctor use to help Mary remain brave?

    • A.

      "Truth is always best."

    • B.

      "God helps those who help themselves."

    • C.

      "Do that which is good, and no harm will come to thee."

    • D.

      The twenty-third Psalm

    Correct Answer
    C. "Do that which is good, and no harm will come to thee."
    Explanation
    Proctor used the quote "Do that which is good, and no harm will come to thee" to encourage Mary to stay brave. This quote suggests that as long as one does what is morally right, they will be protected from harm. Proctor likely used this quote to remind Mary that if she stays true to her principles and does what is right, she will be safe and can face any challenges with courage.

    • C.

      He accuses him of taking advantage of the girls.

    • D.

      He accuses him of being a hypocrite.

    Correct Answer
    A. He accuses him of killing his neighbors for their land.
    Explanation
    Giles accuses Putnam of killing his neighbors for their land. This accusation suggests that Giles believes Putnam is using nefarious means to acquire more land, possibly through murder. It implies that Giles suspects Putnam of being motivated by greed and a desire for power, willing to go to extreme lengths to achieve his goals. This accusation carries serious implications and suggests a deep distrust and animosity between the two characters.

    Correct Answer
    D. He begins to realize that the people who had been accused and sentenced so far could very well have been innocent.
    Explanation
    Hale's problem as Proctor and his friends present evidence to Danforth is that he begins to realize that the people who had been accused and sentenced so far could very well have been innocent. This realization creates a conflict for Hale as it challenges his previous beliefs and actions in the witch trials. It forces him to question the validity of the court proceedings and the harm that has been done to innocent people.
