In Arthur Miller's play "The Crucible," Reverend Hale is a minister who is called to Salem to investigate the accusations of witchcraft.

    Explanation
    John Proctor is the correct answer because in Arthur Miller's play "The Crucible," John Proctor is the character who had an affair with Abigail Williams. The affair is a central plot point in the play and is one of the main reasons for the witch trials that occur in Salem. Proctor's guilt and struggle with his own moral integrity are explored throughout the play, making him a significant character in the story.

    Francis Nurse is the correct answer because the statement mentions that the wealthy man is an enemy of Thomas Putnam and his wife. In Arthur Miller's play "The Crucible," Francis Nurse is a wealthy and respected man in Salem who becomes a target of the Putnams' accusations and vendetta. This is evident in the play when the Putnams accuse Francis Nurse's wife of witchcraft in order to gain more land. Therefore, Francis Nurse fits the given description and is the correct answer.
