Answer :

(a) Metellus approaches Caesar to request that his brother, Publius Cimber, who has been banished from Rome, be granted permission to return. Caesar answers that since Publius was banished by lawful decree, there is not just cause for absolving his guilt. Brutus and Cassius kneel at Caesar’s feet and repeat Metellus’s plea; Caesar answers that he will not change his mind now, declaring himself as “constant as the Northern Star”.

(c) The snake sipped water with his straight mouth, softly drinking through his straight gums, into his slack body. At times he lifted his head while drinking, as cattle do and looked at the poet. Then flickering his tongue from his lips, he stopped for a moment, before stopping to drink a little more.


(d) The ship was caught in the fury of a fierce and violent sea storm that completely overtook the ship and forcibly drove it towards the South Pole, the area of mist and snow. It was a lifeless and terrible region where the vessel lay motionless, surrounded by the huge icebergs.


(e) ) The irony in the poem is the fact that the ruler carved as a sculpture is depicted to be very powerful and tyrannous. He is shown to be boastful of the fact that he is the greatest ruler of all times. However, he hasn't been able to win over time. Time is shown here to be more powerful and destructive than the ruler. This ironical situation projects the truth that man doesn't have control over the laws of nature and time does not take into consideration the mount of power one possesses
