Question description

(1.) Read the excerpt from The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare:

 
FRIAR LAWRENCE
For naught so vile that on the Earth doth live
But to the Earth some special good doth give;
Nor aught so good that but, strained from that fair use,
Revolts from true birth, stumbling upon abuse.
Virtue itself turns vice, being misapplied,
And vice sometime by action dignified.
—act 2, scene 3

 
Which answer best summarizes a supporting detail from the passage?
 
1. The most dangerous substances on earth can be made to serve useful purposes.

3. Sometimes, people convince themselves its okay to break the rules, but, in reality, it's still wrong.
4. The most helpful substances on earth are those that are not addictive.


(2.) Read the excerpt from The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare:

 
Well, think of marriage now. Younger than you
Here in Verona, ladies of esteem,
Are made already mothers.
—act 1, scene 3

(3.)   Read the excerpt from The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare:

 
CAPULET
Sir Paris, I will make a desperate tender
Of my child’s love. I think she will be ruled
In all respects by me. Nay, more, I doubt it not.—
Wife, go you to her ere you go to bed.
Acquaint her here of my son Paris' love,
And bid her—mark you me?—on Wednesday next—
But, soft, what day is this?
—act 3, scene 4

 
How does Shakespeare use dramatic irony to reveal that Lord Capulet has a detached relationship with his daughter?
 
1. Lord Capulet offers his daughter in marriage to someone who he does not care for.
2. Lord Capulet offers his daughter in marriage because he does not want her to be sad.
3. Lord Capulet offers his daughter in marriage without consulting his wife first.
4. Lord Capulet offers his daughter in marriage because he does not know she is already married.


(4.)  Read the excerpt from Katherine Philips’s poem “Epitaph”:

 
Seven years childless marriage past,
A son, a son is born at last;
So exactly limbed and fair,
Full of good spirits, mien, and air,
As a long life promisèd,
Yet, in less than six weeks dead.

 
What is Philips's purpose in using rhyming couplets in these lines?
 
1. to give the poem a pleasurable rhythm
2. to show that the concepts in the rhyming sets of lines are related
3. to demonstrate her considerable abilities as a poet
4. to show that there is reason for hope even in the worst of times

Yet, in less than six weeks dead.
