Hamlet Act One. Quiz

I am just making this quiz partly to help myself learn Hamlet, and partly to help anyone else who might take this quiz. Why do I have to write 1 hundred and fifty characters in this paragraph?

This is quite annoying, having to write two paragraphs for the begining i mean. I don't see why they can't be optional. (Thats why I'm writing a load of rubbish because I don't have anything to say!)
