Answers
1. Philotis gave Bergetto a codpiece-point and box of marmalade. The codpiece-point was used to fasten a codpiece over a man’s genitals.

2. Florio says he chose Soranzo over Annabella’s other suitors because he expects Soranzo to accomplish great things in his life.

3. Giovanni tells Putana to keep the doctor away from Annabella and say that she is ill from eating bad food. By carrying out these instructions, Annabella’s pregnancy will be concealed.

4. Grimaldi justifies his plan to kill Soranzo by claiming that although it is not noble, in affairs of love devious and underhanded methods are sometimes necessary.

5. Richardetto wants Bergetto to stop kissing Philotis because Bergetto and Philotis are scheduled to be married by the Friar soon. He tells Bergetto that once he marries Philotis, there will be plenty of time to kiss her.
