    • A.

      Become saints

    • B.

      Stay in jail

    • C.

      Be saved from hanging

    • D.

      Be tried in court

    Correct Answer
    C. Be saved from hanging
    Explanation
    If people confess to witchcraft, Elizabeth explains to Proctor that they will be saved from hanging. This suggests that the punishment for those who admit to being witches is not death by hanging, but rather some other form of punishment or redemption. It implies that by confessing, they can avoid the ultimate consequence of their actions and potentially be given a chance at redemption or forgiveness.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Proctor knows that Abigail

    • A.

      Lied about the witchcraft in the woods

    • B.

      Wants to come back to work for Elizabeth

    • C.

      Mentioned his name in court

    • D.

      Plans to accuse Elizabeth of murder

    Correct Answer
    A. Lied about the witchcraft in the woods
    Explanation
    Abigail's lie about witchcraft in the woods is the correct answer because it is the most relevant and concrete information provided in the question. The other options, such as wanting to come back to work for Elizabeth or mentioning the proctor's name in court, do not directly relate to the proctor's knowledge. Additionally, there is no mention of Abigail planning to accuse Elizabeth of murder in the given information. Therefore, the only valid and supported option is that Abigail lied about witchcraft in the woods.

      He sneaks around the house quietly.

    • D.

      He lied about seeing Abigail alone.

    Correct Answer
    D. He lied about seeing Abigail alone.
    Explanation
    Elizabeth is suspicious of Proctor because he lied about seeing Abigail alone. This suggests that Proctor may have something to hide or may be involved in an inappropriate relationship with Abigail. Lying about this meeting raises doubts about Proctor's honesty and integrity, leading Elizabeth to question his intentions and loyalty.

      Thinks Elizabeth is cold

    • C.

      Wants to marry Proctor

    • D.

      Is naming everyone

    Correct Answer
    C. Wants to marry Proctor
    Explanation
    Abigail accuses Elizabeth of witchcraft because she wants to marry Proctor. This suggests that Abigail sees Elizabeth as a rival for Proctor's affections and believes that by accusing her of witchcraft, she can eliminate the competition and have Proctor all to herself. This motive is further supported by Abigail's manipulative and deceitful behavior throughout the play, as she consistently tries to gain power and control over others for her own personal gain.

    • C.

      He is joking.

    • D.

      He never knew it.

    Correct Answer
    B. He feels guilty.
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "He feels guilty." This conclusion can be drawn because forgetting the commandment about adultery suggests that Proctor is deeply affected by his own guilt and shame for committing adultery with Abigail. Forgetting such a significant commandment indicates that he is struggling with his actions and their moral consequences, leading to a feeling of guilt.

    Correct Answer
    A. The needle in the poppet
    Explanation
    The circumstance that points to Abigail as the villain in this drama is the needle in the poppet. This suggests that Abigail planted the needle in the poppet to frame Elizabeth Proctor and accuse her of witchcraft. This action demonstrates Abigail's malicious intent and her willingness to manipulate and deceive others in order to achieve her own selfish goals. It also shows her willingness to harm innocent people and destroy their lives for her own benefit.

      Strong

    • D.

      Angry

    Correct Answer
    C. Strong
    Explanation
    Elizabeth's willingness to go with Cheever suggests that she possesses a strong character. This can be inferred because her decision to accompany Cheever indicates that she is confident and determined. It takes strength to willingly go along with someone, especially in uncertain or potentially dangerous situations. This implies that Elizabeth is not easily swayed or intimidated, and she possesses a strong willpower and resolve.

He may be questioning their motives and integrity, implying that he believes they may be falsely accusing Elizabeth or acting out of personal vendettas. This question reflects Proctor's doubts and suspicions about the accusers' innocence in the situation.
