In Shakespeare's play "Macbeth," Hecate is a powerful supernatural being who is associated with witchcraft and plays a significant role in manipulating Macbeth and his actions. Lady Macbeth, Lady Macduff, and Mary Wollenscraft are not associated with the title "queen of the witches," making them incorrect options.

    Macbeth takes place in Rome in the 1500's.

    • 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 play revolves around the story of Macbeth, a Scottish nobleman, and his ambitious wife Lady Macbeth. The events of the play take place in various locations in Scotland, including Macbeth's castle, the royal palace, and the battlefield. The play explores themes of ambition, power, and the consequences of unchecked ambition.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    Macbeth is crowned the King of Scotland at Edinburgh.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Macbeth is not crowned the King of Scotland at Edinburgh. In the play "Macbeth" by William Shakespeare, Macbeth becomes the King of Scotland, but his coronation does not take place in Edinburgh. The exact location of his coronation is not specified in the play. Therefore, the answer is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    A character's speech while he is alone on stage is called an aside.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False

    Divisions of a play are called acts, and further divisions are called scenes.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True

  • 16. 

    Banquo and Fleance are both killed.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Banquo and Fleance are not both killed. In the play Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Banquo is indeed killed by hired assassins under Macbeth's orders, but Fleance manages to escape. This is significant because the witches had prophesied that Banquo's descendants would be kings, and Macbeth wanted to prevent that from happening. However, Fleance's survival leaves the possibility open for the prophecy to come true in the future.

    • A.

      True

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    During the banquet, only Macbeth sees Banquo's ghost, while Lady Macbeth does not. This is evident in Act 3, Scene 4 of Shakespeare's play Macbeth, where Macbeth becomes increasingly disturbed by the presence of Banquo's ghost, while Lady Macbeth tries to calm him down and dismisses his claims.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Explanation
    By Act V of Shakespeare's play "Macbeth," Lady Macbeth's guilt over her involvement in the murder of King Duncan has taken a toll on her mental state. She is plagued by hallucinations and sleepwalking, constantly trying to wash the imaginary bloodstains from her hands. This descent into madness is a clear indication of the overwhelming guilt she feels, making the statement "By Act V, Lady Macbeth has gone insane from guilt" true.

    Malcolm orders his soldiers to camouflage themselves with branches from Birnam Wood.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In the play "Macbeth" by William Shakespeare, Malcolm orders his soldiers to camouflage themselves with branches from Birnam Wood. This is a significant event in the play because it fulfills the prophecy that Macbeth will be defeated when Birnam Wood moves to Dunsinane. The soldiers' use of branches from Birnam Wood symbolizes the fulfillment of the prophecy and ultimately leads to Macbeth's downfall. Therefore, the statement is true.

    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 drawing a comparison between two things that may not have an obvious connection. By using "like" or "as," the speaker is able to create a vivid and imaginative comparison that helps the listener or reader better understand the concept being conveyed. 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.

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The given statement is false. Lady Macbeth does not try to remove the imaginary spot of blood from the murders committed by her and her husband. In fact, it is Macbeth who becomes obsessed with the guilt and hallucinates the presence of blood on his hands. Lady Macbeth, on the other hand, tries to convince Macbeth to suppress his guilt and move on from their crimes.

    Explanation
    The statement "At the end of the play, Fleance is named king" is false. In Shakespeare's play Macbeth, Fleance is the son of Banquo and is a minor character. He does not become king at the end of the play. The true ending of the play involves Macbeth's defeat and the restoration of the rightful king, Malcolm, to the throne.

This prophecy is significant because it implies that Banquo's lineage will have a great impact on the future of the kingdom. It also creates tension between Banquo and Macbeth, as Macbeth becomes obsessed with securing his own power and eliminating any potential threats to his throne.
