Copy down the following "sentences" and correctly break them apart.

In the play, Macbeth orders these murderers to kill Banquo and his son Fleance because Macbeth is fearful after what the witches said to Banquo. This was that one day, his sons will be kings. So the murderers ambush Banquo and Fleance; they kill Banquo but fail to kill Fleance.

So he kills the king then he kills his best friend Banquo because there is conflict between them. Also, there is conflict between one of the other thanes (Macduff).

The conflict begins when three witches tell Macbeth that he shall be king and so he kills the king and becomes king himself. This soon leads him to be suspicious of his best friend Banquo as the witches had also told him that his sons would be kings. Macbeth has him and his son killed. Although the son escapes, Macbeth soon loses his mind. He begins seeing Banquo's ghost, which makes the other thanes suspicious of Macbeth. This causes Macbeth to return to the witches to ask for help and they tell him to beware Macduff, so he has Macduff's family killed.
