In “Rebecca” what does Mrs. Danvers trick Mrs. De Winter into doing?
Boarding a doomed ship
Wearing the same dress as Rebecca
Dancing with the wrong man
Setting the estate on fire
From the time Mrs. De Winter arrives at Manderley, it is obvious that the housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers, is not pleased. In Daphne du Maurier’s 1938 novel, Mrs. Danvers intimidates the protagonist constantly, but her cruelest act was tricking Mrs. De Winter into unknowingly wearing the same dress as the former mistress of Manderley, Mr. De Winter’s deceased first wife, Rebecca.
This infuriated Mr. De Winter, who blamed his new wife for the act, causing a rift between them, just as Mrs. Danvers had hoped.
Answer: The correct answer is Wearing the same dress as Rebecca.
