I could not help thinking, as I looked at the works of Shakespeare on the self, that it would have been impossible, completely and entirely, for any woman to have written the plays of Shakespeare in the age of Shakespeare. Let me imagine, since facts are so hard to come by, what would have happened had Shakespeare had a wonderfully gifted sister, called Judith, let us say. Shakespeare himself went, very probably – his mother was an heiress – to the grammar school, where he may have learnt Latin – Ovid, Virgil and Horace – and the elements of grammar and logic. He was, it is well known, a wild boy who poached rabbits, perhaps shot a deer, and had, rather sooner than he should have done, to marry a women in the neighborhood, who bore him a child rather quicker than was right. That escapade sent him to seek his fortune in London. He had, it seemed, a taste for the theater; he began by holding horses at the stage door.

96. Shakespeare's sister was

ordinary
wise
imaginary
famous

97. Which of the following statements is true ?

Judith was Shakespeare's wife.
Shakespeare's mother was poor.
Shakespeare learnt Roman.
Shakespeare did not have a sister.

search
maintain
manage to gate
invent

99. The passage is about

Shakespeare's life
Shakespeare's sister
Shakespeare's theater
Shakespeare's writing

100. Shakespeare's marriage reveals that he was

stealthy
impulsive
talented
wise
