Step-by-step answers

Answered by a new expert
1)Answer: c. Brutus trying to decide whether his love of Rome is stronger than his love for Caesar.
Explanation: Written by Shakespeare in 1599, the play presents Brutus' need to decide whether he loved Rome more or his friendship with Caesar. He ends up deciding that Julius Caesar's abuse of power will cause negative repercussions in Rome and joins the conspiracy against Caesar. This conflict directly decides the tone and direction of the play, culminating with Brutus being proclaimed "the noblest Roman of them all".

2)Answer: c. The audience knows all about the plot to kill Caesar, but Caesar himself knows nothing.
Explanation: Dramatic irony is a typical feature of the tragedy.
In this situation, the audience or the reader has a knowledge about the events that are developing much greater than the information that a character has, in this case Caesar.
Caesar does not even imagine that they are planning to kill him, much less that his best friend and right hand is one of those who plans to do so.
This is clearly demonstrated when he expresses the phrase: "Et tu, Brute?" seeing Brutus among the group of his murderers. With this phrase Caesar shows that he had no idea what was happening and could not even believe how his friend was betraying him.
Therefore, the correct answer is The audience knows all about the plot to kill Caesar, but Caesar himself knows nothing.

3)Answer: b. Antony wants to make the people angry at the conspirators by defending Caesar.
Explanation: With these words, Antony wants to show all the nobility, strength and honor of Caesar, thereby causing the people to feel sorrow and desire to avenge such a just person.
