The Crucible Act 3

Why have GIles, Proctor, and Francis come to the court? To prove that their wives were innocent.
In lines 142-145, Danforth says to Francis, “And do you know that near to four hundred are in the jails from Marblehead to Lynn, and upon my signature?” Based on this dialogue, what can we conclude about Danforth? Danforth is offended that people question his authority.
According to Giles, why is George Jacobs accused of witchcraft? Because Thomas Putnam wants his land.
Why is Giles Corey afraid to reveal the names of his witnesses? He fears the witnesses will be arrested.
Why does Proctor finally tell about his affair with Abigail? To save Elizabeth.
Danforth remarks that Giles’s deposition is “very well phrased.” Why is Giles familiar with the law? He has brought many lawsuits against his neighbors.
In lines 847-849, Proctor responds to Parris’s statements against Elizabeth by saying, “There might also be a dragon with five legs in my house, but no one has ever seen it.” What is the effect of this hyperbole? John Proctor is tired of trying to defend ridiculous accusations without any real proof.
To avoid being questioned about the truth of her accusations, what does Abigail suggest that she will do? Abigail suggests that she will accuse Danforth of being possessed.
Why does Elizabeth lie to the court about Abigail’s affair with Proctor? To avoid shaming Proctor.
