#### QUESTION

I was studying the Danish Gambit recently. The Wikipedia page about Danish Gambit listed the first moves as: 1. e4 e5 2. d4 exd4 3. c3 dxc3 4. Nxc3...

[FEN " "]
1. e4 e5 2. d4 exd4 3. c3 dxc3 4. Nxc3



I am a beginner and I didn't what to do after. The page itself listed a few variations.

• 4...d6 5.Bc4 Nc6 6.Nf3
• 4...Bc5 5.Bc4 Nc6 6.Nf3
• 4...Nc6 5.Bc4 and 6.Nf3
• 4...Bb4 5.Bc4

But I could not understand them (I mean, I couldn't make out the use of making those particular moves). Could anyone help me to decode the underlying tactics of making such moves?
