The setting of a costume party adds an element of disguise and intrigue to their meeting, making it more memorable and significant in the story.

After Tybalt kills Romeo's friend Mercutio, Romeo seeks revenge and fights Tybalt, resulting in Tybalt's death. This event further escalates the conflict between the Capulets and Montagues, leading to tragic consequences for the young lovers.

  • 9. 

    As a result of Romeo's act of murder, he is...

    • A.

      Sentenced to death

    • B.

      Sentenced to banishment

    • C.

      Sentenced to life in prison

    • D.

      Sentenced to five minutes of a Ke$ha album

    Correct Answer
    B. Sentenced to banishment
    Explanation
    Romeo is sentenced to banishment because murder is a serious crime and the punishment for such an act is often severe. Banishment means being forced to leave a place or community and not being allowed to return. This punishment is less severe than death or life in prison, but still serves as a significant consequence for Romeo's actions. The option of being sentenced to five minutes of a Ke$ha album is not a plausible punishment for murder and is therefore not the correct answer.

    • A.

      Pretending to drown

    • B.

    • C.

      Covering herself in pig's blood

    • D.

      Leaving a phony suicide note

    Correct Answer
    B. Drinking fake poison
    Explanation
    Juliet is going to fake her death by drinking fake poison. This means that she plans to consume a substance that resembles poison but is not actually harmful. By doing so, she can create the illusion of her death without actually putting her life at risk. This method allows her to deceive others into believing that she has died, while ensuring her own safety.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    Which one of the following is NOT a category of Shakespeare's plays?

    • A.

      Tragedy

    • B.

      Romance

    • C.

      Comedy

    • D.

      History

    Correct Answer
    B. Romance
    Explanation
    Shakespeare's plays are categorized into four main genres: tragedy, comedy, history, and romance. While tragedy, comedy, and history are all recognized categories of Shakespeare's plays, romance is not. Romance as a genre typically refers to stories that involve love, adventure, and often include elements of magic or the supernatural. Shakespeare did write plays that contained romantic elements, but romance as a distinct category was not recognized during his time. Therefore, romance is not a category of Shakespeare's plays.

      Listing to an entire Ke$ha album

    Correct Answer
    B. Stabbing herself with his knife
    Explanation
    Juliet kills herself by stabbing herself with Romeo's knife. This is a significant event in the play "Romeo and Juliet" by William Shakespeare. After discovering Romeo's lifeless body, Juliet is devastated and decides to take her own life as well. By using Romeo's knife, she symbolically connects herself to him and the tragic fate they share. This act of self-inflicted violence demonstrates the depth of their love and the desperation they feel in the face of their feuding families' opposition.
