      The Friar is speaking to himself in his meadow

    • D.

      The Friar is speaking to the Nurse

    Correct Answer
    C. The Friar is speaking to himself in his meadow
    Explanation
    In this quote, the speaker is expressing his intention to gather both harmful weeds and valuable flowers in their wicker cage. The mention of the earth being both nature's mother and tomb suggests a sense of duality and the cycle of life and death. The fact that the speaker is speaking to himself in his meadow indicates that he is contemplating and reflecting on the natural world and its contradictions.

      Reunited with Roselyn, he has no idea about Juliet

    • C.

      In an argument with Benvolio

    • D.

      He has killed Tybalt

    Correct Answer
    B. Reunited with Roselyn, he has no idea about Juliet
    Explanation
    The Friar assumes that Romeo has been reunited with Rosaline because he is unaware of Romeo's new love interest, Juliet. This assumption is based on the information available to the Friar at the start of the play, where Romeo was infatuated with Rosaline. Therefore, the Friar assumes that Romeo's current state of mind is due to his reunion with Rosaline, not knowing about his love for Juliet.

    Rate this question:

      Mercutio

    Correct Answer
    B. The Friar
    Explanation
    The speaker in the given quote is expressing surprise and disbelief at someone's quick change of affection. The mention of Rosaline indicates that the person being addressed had previously loved her deeply. The only character among the options who is known for his close relationship with Romeo and involvement in their secret marriage is Friar Lawrence. Therefore, the correct answer is the Friar.
