of mice and men ch 4 test

Identify Crooks Crooks is the black stable hand. He has apparently worked on this ranch for some time, judging from his accumulated possessions.
Lennie tells Crooks about the land. What is his reply at first? Crooks tells Lennie that he is nuts. He says he’s seen hundreds of hands come and go with the same dream of having a piece of land, and none of them ever actually did get any land. “Nobody gets to haven, and nobody gets no land. It’s just in their head.”
What does Crooks want when he believes there might really be land? He wants to join the men on the land and will work for free, for just being able to live there.
Why did Curley’s wife come to the barn? She was looking for Curley, she said, but she actually came to talk to the men and find some company.
Why did Crooks change his mind after Curley’s wife left? He realized that the dream could never come true for him. He was a Negro who had just been put in his place by a white woman, and this fact brought back the harsh reality of his life.
