The events of the play take place over how many days?

At church
At the Capulet house

In the city square
It seems as though Romeo and Juliet have never seen one another despite the mutual rivalry of their families
"And about his shelves / A beggarly account of empty boxes, / Green earthen pots, bladders, and musty seeds, / Remnants of packthread, and old cakes of roses / Were thinly scattered to make up a show." To what does Romeo refer in these lines?
Friar Laurence's cell

The 3rd or 4th
The 6th or 7th
The 10th or 11th

Romeo and Juliet marry in Friar Laurence's "cell". What is a cell in this context?
A grand church
A cavern
A cellar
A small room in a monastery or a friary
A "cell" is the room in which a monk, nun, or friar sleeps. By marrying in such a private place, Romeo and Juliet keep their marriage as secret as they are able. Marrying in public would give their families a chance to insist on their marriage being annulled
In which setting does the final scene take place?
The church
The Capulet vault
The Capulet orchard
The grounds of the Montagues' house
The family vault, or mausoleum, is the site of the final events of the play, including Romeo's killing of Paris. Juliet has been laid to rest within the tomb after her family believe she has died and the final stage directions involve the closing of the tomb
