Introduction

1) Study Source A What can we learn from Source A about the murder of Polly Nicholls? From Source A I can see that the murder of Polly Nicholls had a apparent lack of motive which the source mentions but as Polly Nicholls was very poor and a prostitute from my own knowledge, I can see that wasn't the case why she got murdered so there was no adequate motive in Polly Nicholls death.

So really I can answer the question about what I can learn from Source A about the death of Polly Nicholls but very briefly because the detail of her murder is very limited so you cant answer the question with great detail because there is brief detail in the source. ...read more.
