MACBTH-EV2N2K

According to Macbeth, why can't he kill Banquo himself?

A

Macbeth is too afraid of Banquo's bravery and power.

B

They have too many common and powerful friends who would be upset if Macbeth killed Banquo.

C

Macbeth, despite these plans, still loves Banquo as a friend and cannot bear to do the deed himself.

D

There are too many reasons why, Macbeth claims, which the murderers would not understand.

E

Even though he is king, Macbeth does not have that kind of power to kill someone directly.
