Macbeth's Decision

MACBTH-NFWO6G

Which of the following BEST describes Macbeth's thoughts at the end of the scene?

A

Macbeth is at a loss by the new honors and quickly changing circumstances, leaving him unable to make decisions and therefore vulnerable to outside influences.

B

Macbeth has already decided that he will need to murder the king, as he will never fulfill the prophecy and his own desires if he does not act.

C

Macbeth realizes that as much as he wants to be king, he should yield to solid counsel from Banquo, as he himself cannot decide on his course of action.

D

Macbeth clearly desires more power as the witches promised but is conflicted by his conscience. He comes to the conclusion that he will let fate run its course.

E

Macbeth is willing to risk everything to become king, even if it means enduring the roughest of times, as he realizes the ends will ultimately justify the means.
