1. a - not a direct variation
2. d - direct variation, constant of variation is -2
3. b - direct variation, constant of variation is 1/2
4. a - y = -5x
5. c - y = 5/2x
6. d - y = 2.6x
i'm not sure about your 7 and 8 because i don't have them. i'm sorry! but here ya'll go
The correct answer is: They have to decide whether to help Brutus kill himself
In these two excerpts, we can observe Brutus begging two of his soldiers in two different instances to hold the hilt of his sword so he can run on it and kill himself. Both soldiers (Volumnius and Strato) have to decide whether to help Brutus kill himself but, even though Volumnius knows Brutus since they were children, and due to his obedient nature, only Strato accepts to fulfill Brutus' suicidal wish.
hope this !
