Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    What do the ministers urge Hester Prynne to do? 

    • A.

      Stand on the scaffold every day

    • B.

      Take off the scarlet letter

    • C.

      Leave town

    • D.

      Reveal the name of the baby's father

    Correct Answer
    D. Reveal the name of the baby's father
    Explanation
    The ministers urge Hester Prynne to reveal the name of the baby's father. This is evident from the fact that the other options - standing on the scaffold every day, taking off the scarlet letter, and leaving town - do not align with the context of the question. The ministers want Hester to publicly acknowledge the identity of the person responsible for her child, which would likely bring shame and punishment upon both of them.
