Oh I am reading this book right now!
For AP English
One moment I'm going to read the context.
Well a and c don't make sense because Proctor was speaking to Putnam in this part of the play.
He was telling Putnam that he shouldn't boss Parris.
I would say B just by elimination but I'll keep looking...
It DOES make sense because "voting by name in this society, not acreage" means that reputation means more than money. Acreage meaning land and therefore wealth. The name referring to the name being "good" or not in the village which is a major theme in this book, and if you remember Abigail was arguing that her name was "good" in the village.
i also have one more question i cant seem to answer about this book. do you think you could help me with it as well?
Does the explanation make sense? ^
Putnam's wife was revengeful because _____. A- she thought that witchcraft and the supernatural were to blame for the deaths of her unborn children B- her husband had an affair C- her husband had been wronged by the church D- her husband was cheated out of land
yes it does make sense haha.
Definitely A. She was very persistant in saying that seven of her children died as children and the only one alive was sick. She said many times that she believes that unnatural causes were the reasons for her children's deaths and sought revenge.
thats what i was thinking as well.
Awesome! Tag me if you need help, later.
