      A circle

    • B.

      A burning log

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. A circle
    B. A burning log
    Explanation
    Van Helsing uses a circle and a burning log to protect himself from the three vampire women. A circle is often believed to have protective properties against supernatural beings, as it creates a boundary that they cannot cross. The burning log, on the other hand, is a symbol of light and purity, which vampires are typically repelled by. Together, these two objects serve as effective defenses against the vampire women, allowing Van Helsing to protect himself from their attacks.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation

    • A.

      True

    • B.

    Dracula's mode of transportation from Transylvania to England was a wooden box. This implies that he was able to fit himself inside the box and be transported across countries.

Therefore, the statement "Dracula traveled from Transylvania to England in a wooden box" is true.

    Vampires do not die of old age.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Vampires do not die of old age because they are immortal creatures. They do not age like humans do, so they do not experience the physical and biological changes that come with aging. This immortality is often depicted in vampire lore and mythology, where vampires are shown to live for centuries without showing any signs of aging or dying from natural causes. Instead, vampires can be killed through other means such as sunlight, stakes through the heart, or decapitation.

    Explanation
    The statement mentions that at Carfax, Van Helsing and his men are attacked by thousands of snakes. However, this statement is not true as there is no mention of such an event in any known version of the story of Van Helsing or Carfax. Therefore, the correct answer is False.
