This senior high school English Literature quiz tests you on understanding the text of Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. Before beginning to analyze and to write about a text, it is important to ensure that you understand it as well as possible. Although this sounds a simple idea, understanding a text is not always straightforward. After all, if authors only wished to convey a simple message, would the task require hundreds of pages and thousands of words?

1.
Dr Jekyll returns briefly to his former self and spends more time with his friends following which event?
The death of Dr Lanyon
One of the key ingredients of his potion becomes unavailable
The murder of Sir Danvers Carew
Mr Utterson questions him once more about his will
The murder shocks Dr Jekyll and he tries to make up for the event by doing good deeds. Mr Hyde must also be hidden away because he is a wanted man after the murder
2.
How does Mr Utterson first learn of Mr Hyde's brutish behavior?
Dr Lanyon discusses his suspicions with Mr Utterson
Mr Enfield tells him about witnessing Mr Hyde trampling over a young girl without stopping
He witnesses Mr Hyde trampling over a young girl at a street corner without stopping
Dr Jekyll appeals to him for help after Mr Hyde tramples a young girl in the street
Mr Enfield describes Mr Hyde to Mr Utterson as a "juggernaut" because his physical progress seemed unstoppable
3.
What is the relationship between Mr Utterson and Dr Jekyll?
The two men have a purely professional relationship, with Mr Utterson acting as Dr Jekyll's lawyer
The two men are minor acquaintances
The two men are estranged
The two men are old friends
The two men are old friends and Mr Utterson keeps a copy of Dr Jekyll's will and knows its contents, although he refused to help create it. Their long acquaintance allows Utterson to notice changes in Jekyll's behavior over time
4.
Where does Dr Jekyll leave his confession?
In a safe
In a large envelope on his desk
With his butler
In his filing cabinet
Mr Utterson cannot understand how Mr Hyde did not destroy the envelope, which also included a will in which Dr Jekyll names the lawyer as the inheritor of his estate
5.
Which one of the following terms of Dr Jekyll's will gives Mr Utterson the greatest concern?
In the case of Jekyll's death, all of his possessions will be inherited by Hyde
In the case of his disappearance, his home and possessions will be immediately inherited by Hyde
With minor exceptions, Hyde will be free from obligations after inheriting Jekyll's estate
Hyde must pay a few small amounts to the members of Jekyll's household after inheriting the estate
The fact that Dr Jekyll envisages an unexplained disappearance (specified as being over three months) makes Mr Utterson deeply suspicious of Mr Hyde, who stands to benefit greatly from such an event
6.
Mr Hyde gradually begins to gain the upper hand over Dr Jekyll, who finds himself transforming without consuming his concoction. Which of the following explains why he struggles to return to his own self?
One of the original ingredients for the drug cannot be reproduced
He runs out of money to buy the ingredients for the drug
The pharmacists become suspicious and refuse to see him the necessary ingredients for the drug
He forgets how to make the drug
Dr Jekyll comes to realize that one of his original ingredients, a salt, was impure and that the pure substance does not have the same effect
7.
What causes Dr Lanyon's death?
Mr Hyde threatens him in public
Dr Jekyll gives him a drug which makes him ill
Old age
Shock
Dr Lanyon never recovers from the shock of witnessing Mr Hyde change form into Dr Jekyll
8.
Mr Utterson believes Dr Jekyll to be a victim of Mr Hyde. Of what does he suspect Hyde?
Blackmail
Bribery
Libel
All of the above
Mr Utterson is convinced that Mr Hyde knows some sort of secret about Dr Jekyll, perhaps relating to the doctor having behaved unwisely in his youth, and holds the threat of exposure over the other man in return for money
9.
What reason does Dr Jekyll give for experimenting with the potion?
He wished to free his primitive nature from the "remorse of his more upright twin"
He wished to free his "upright" nature from the shame caused by his primitive nature
He wished to test his theory of humanity's dual identity
All of the above
Dr Jekyll is drawn by the potential to enjoy indulging in what he sees as his primitive desires while maintaining an outwardly respectable life. He is also irresistibly drawn to testing his theoretic scientific ideas
10.
Why does Dr Jekyll become progressively more confined to his home, and more specifically, his living quarters and lab?
He becomes bored with ordinary life, making him unsociable
He realizes that he has begun to hate all of humankind
He can no longer control his transformations into Mr Hyde
His servants insist on keeping him confined
Mr Hyde is wanted for the murder of Sir Danvers Carew; Dr Jekyll also still wishes to keep his experimentation secret
