    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    Why is Crooks not allowed in the bunkhouse?

    • A.

      Because he's old

    • B.

      Because he doesn't know how to play cards

    • D.

      Because he got in a fight with Curley

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. Because he's black
    Explanation
    Crooks is not allowed in the bunkhouse because he is black. This suggests that there is racial discrimination on the ranch, as the other options given do not provide a valid reason for his exclusion. The answer implies that Crooks is being segregated and treated unfairly based on his race, highlighting the racial prejudices and inequalities present in the society depicted in the story.

    Rate this question:

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Crooks, a character in the novel "Of Mice and Men," expresses skepticism about George, Lennie, and Candy's plan to buy land. This skepticism is evident in his interactions with them, as he questions their ability to achieve their dream and warns them about the difficulties they may face. Crooks, being a marginalized character himself, understands the harsh realities of the world and doubts the feasibility of their plan. Therefore, the statement that Crooks is skeptical about their plan is true.

    Rate this question:

      The bunkhouse

    • B.

      The ranch

    • C.

      A brothel

    • D.

      A rodeo

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. A brothel
    Explanation
    In Chapter 4, George, Slim, Curley, and the other guys are not in the bunkhouse or the ranch. They are also not at a rodeo. The correct answer is a brothel, indicating that they are at a place where prostitution takes place. This suggests that they have gone to seek some form of entertainment or escape from their daily lives on the ranch.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Curley's wife is happy staying at home.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that Curley's wife is happy staying at home. However, this is not true. Throughout the novel "Of Mice and Men," Curley's wife expresses her dissatisfaction with her life and marriage. She constantly seeks attention and companionship from the other men on the ranch, which indicates her unhappiness and desire for a different life. Therefore, the correct answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Carlson accidentally tells Curley's wife about the fight between Curley and Lennie.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because Carlson does not accidentally tell Curley's wife about the fight between Curley and Lennie. In John Steinbeck's novel "Of Mice and Men," it is actually Candy who accidentally reveals the information to Curley's wife. Carlson is not involved in this particular incident.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Why is Curley jealous? Why is Curley's wife unhappy? Between the two, who do you side with more?
