    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In Act 1 of Romeo and Juliet, Romeo is initially lovesick for Rosaline, not Juliet. He is depicted as being deeply infatuated with Rosaline and pining for her love. It is only after he attends the Capulet's party and sees Juliet that his affections quickly shift towards her. Therefore, the statement that Romeo is lovesick for Juliet at the beginning of Act 1 is false.

  • 13. 

    Romeo has a feeling that something bad may happen at the party.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Romeo's feeling that something bad may happen at the party suggests that he has a sense of foreboding or intuition about a potential negative event occurring. This feeling could be based on various factors such as his knowledge of the party's attendees, past experiences, or even a gut instinct. Regardless of the specific reason, Romeo's belief that something bad may happen indicates that he is apprehensive or concerned about the party's outcome. Therefore, the answer "True" accurately reflects Romeo's feeling in this context.

    Rate this question:

  • 14.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Benvolio does not tell Juliet that Romeo is a Montague and the only son of her great enemy. In fact, Benvolio is a friend of Romeo and tries to help him throughout the play. Benvolio encourages Romeo's love for Juliet and supports their relationship, despite the feud between their families. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 15. 

    Tybalt is glad that Capulet prevents him from fighting Romeo at the party.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Tybalt is not glad that Capulet prevents him from fighting Romeo at the party. This can be inferred from Tybalt's reaction in Shakespeare's play "Romeo and Juliet" when Capulet stops him from confronting Romeo. Tybalt is known for his hot-headed and vengeful nature, and he despises Romeo for being a Montague. Therefore, it is unlikely that Tybalt would be glad about missing an opportunity to fight him.
