7. Explain how the apparitions' prophecies are fulfilled.
The first apparition is of Macduff, armed and warning Macbeth. This comes to happen at the end, when Macbeth meets his end at Macduff's hands.

However, Macduff isn't woman born and succeeds in killing Macbeth. Thirdly, a child crowned and holding a tree warns Macbeth that he will not see his demise unless when Birnam Wood comes against him.
