      Lady Macduff

      Mary Wollenscraft

    Explanation
    Hecate is the correct answer because she is commonly known as the queen of the witches in Shakespeare's play Macbeth. She is a powerful supernatural being who is associated with witchcraft and is often depicted as the leader of the witches. Lady Macbeth is a character in the play who is ambitious and manipulative, but she is not referred to as the queen of the witches. Lady Macduff is another character in the play who is not associated with witchcraft. Mary Wollenscraft, on the other hand, was a feminist writer and philosopher and is not related to the play Macbeth or witchcraft.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because Macbeth is actually set in Scotland, not Rome, during the 11th century.

The setting of Scotland is crucial to the play's themes of power, ambition, and the consequences of unchecked ambition.

    In Shakespeare's play "Macbeth," Macbeth does become the King of Scotland, but he is not crowned at Edinburgh. Instead, he is crowned at Scone, the traditional site for Scottish coronations. Therefore, the statement "Macbeth is crowned the King of Scotland at Edinburgh" is false.

    Explanation

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because in a play, the major divisions are called acts, which represent larger sections of the story. Within each act, there are further divisions called scenes, which represent smaller units of action or dialogue. Acts and scenes help to structure the play and provide a clear framework for the audience to follow the story.

      True

    • B.

      False

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Banquo and Fleance are not both killed. In Shakespeare's play Macbeth, Banquo is indeed murdered by hired assassins, but Fleance manages to escape. This is significant because it fulfills the witches' prophecy that Banquo's descendants will inherit the throne, posing a threat to Macbeth's reign. Fleance's survival also leaves open the possibility of a future uprising against Macbeth's rule.

    Rate this question:

  • 22. 

    During the banquet, both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth see Banquo's ghost.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    During the banquet, only Macbeth sees Banquo's ghost, while Lady Macbeth remains unaware of its presence. This is evident in Act 3, Scene 4 of Shakespeare's play "Macbeth," where Macbeth becomes disturbed by the ghost's appearance and reacts to it, causing confusion and concern among the other guests. Lady Macbeth, on the other hand, tries to downplay Macbeth's behavior and dismisses it as a momentary illness. Therefore, the statement that both Macbeth and Lady Macbeth see Banquo's ghost during the banquet is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    By Act V, Lady Macbeth has gone insane from guilt.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In Act V of Shakespeare's play Macbeth, Lady Macbeth's guilt over her involvement in the murders of King Duncan and others has taken a toll on her mental health. She is plagued by intense guilt and remorse, sleepwalking and trying to wash imaginary bloodstains off her hands. Her descent into madness is evident in her fragmented and nonsensical speech and her inability to find peace. Therefore, the statement "By Act V, Lady Macbeth has gone insane from guilt" is true.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    Donalbain and Malcolm do not come from England to overthrow Macbeth. In fact, they are the sons of King Duncan and flee to Ireland and England respectively after their father's murder. They do not return to Scotland until after Macbeth's downfall. Therefore, the statement is false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In Shakespeare's play Macbeth, Malcolm orders his soldiers to camouflage themselves with branches from Birnam Wood. This is a true statement as it refers to a specific event in the play. Malcolm gives this order as part of his plan to deceive Macbeth and his forces during the final battle. By disguising themselves with branches, Malcolm's soldiers are able to advance on Macbeth's castle undetected, fulfilling the prophecy that Macbeth will not be defeated until Birnam Wood comes to Dunsinane.

    Rate this question:

  • 26. 

    A simile is a figure of speech that uses the words like or as to compare two seemingly unlike things.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    A simile is a figure of speech that uses the words like or as to compare two seemingly unlike things. This means that when using a simile, one is making a comparison between two things that are not typically associated with each other. For example, saying "Her smile is as bright as the sun" is a simile because it compares the brightness of a smile to the brightness of the sun using the word "as". Therefore, the statement "A simile is a figure of speech that uses the words like or as to compare two seemingly unlike things" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    The imaginary spot Lady Macbeth tries to remove is the blood of all those she and her husband have killed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Lady Macbeth does not try to remove an imaginary spot, but rather a metaphorical one. After the murders committed by her and her husband, she hallucinates and believes that she sees blood on her hands. She tries to wash it off, but it is not a physical stain, rather a symbol of guilt and remorse. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    Which prophecy is given to Banquo?

    • A.

      He will be father of kings

    • B.

      He will be killed by Macbeth

    • C.

      He will be become king

    • D.

      He will be labelled a traitor

    Correct Answer
    A. He will be father of kings
    Explanation
    The prophecy given to Banquo is that he will be the father of kings. This means that his descendants will eventually become kings, indicating that his lineage will have a significant impact on the future of Scotland. This prophecy is a contrast to the prophecy given to Macbeth, who is told that he will become king himself. While Macbeth's ambition drives him to fulfill the prophecy through immoral means, Banquo's descendants will achieve the throne through legitimate succession.

It was the owl that shrieked, the fatal bellman, which gives the stern'st good-night." Lady Macbeth plans to frame the servants by drugging them and leaving the daggers at their side, making it seem like they committed the crime while under the influence.

By accusing the servants, he tries to create a narrative that portrays him as innocent and unaware of the crime, thus attempting to absolve himself of responsibility. This justification allows Macbeth to maintain his image and protect himself from potential consequences.
