5. How much does Bergetto think Parma’s prostitutes cost?

Answers
1. Richardetto wants to kill Soranzo because Soranzo had an affair with Richardetto’s wife. Richardetto thinks he can gain revenge for his wife’s adultery with Soranzo by killing Soranzo.

2. Donado tells Bergetto to stay inside his house until Donado returns. He thinks this will keep Bergetto from making any more mistakes.

3. Giovanni objects to the Friar’s advice to have Annabella married because it would “prove her greedy of variety of lust.” If she marries, she would be having sex with both Giovanni and her husband.

4. Donado gives Putana money as payment for her help with Bergetto’s bid to win Annabella.

5. Bergetto thinks Parma’s prostitutes cost half-a-crown apiece. This estimate is roughly double the actual rate, and shows that Bergetto has probably not actually bought any of the prostitutes.
