Read the excerpt from act 4, scene 1, of the tragedy of julius caesar. [exit lepidus] antony. this is a slight, unmeritable man, meet to be sent on errands. is it fit, the three-fold world divided, he should stand one of the three to share it? octavius. so you thought him, and took his voice who should be p to die, in our black sentence and proscription. antony. octavius, i have seen more days than you. and though we lay these honors on this man. to ease ourselves of divers sland’rous loads, he shall but bear them as the a** bears gold, to groan and sweat under the business, either led or driven as we point the way; and having brought our treasure where we will, then take we down his load, and turn him off, like to the empty a**, to shake his ears and graze in commons. what does this interaction reveal about antony’s character? select two options. he feels like he is getting old. he values the efforts of his peers. his opinion of beasts of burden is low. he presents a false demeanor to others. he is ambitious for himself and his friends.
This interaction reveals that Antony's character has a low opinion of beasts of burden (C) because he uses this animal to compare how incapable of doing thing the man who just exited is. What is more, he also presents a false demeanor to others (D) because he starts complaining about his helpless peer once he was already left and Octavious remarks it to him as well.
The correct answers are D & E.

E) He is ambitious for himself and his friends
character vs society.
He plans to remove Lepidus from power once he has served his purpose.
The Anthony was a consummate politician. After the death of Caesar he wants to hold the charge and rule but Caesar already declared his successor in his will. He used Lepidus to bring the will to him and after that he planned to remove him from power which Antony and Octavius. For Antony Lepidus is not more than a trained horse which he used for his purposes.
I think that the correct answer to the question: What type of conflict does this interaction describe, would be, character vs. society.
"The Tragedy of Julius Caesar", is a historical and tragic play that was written by William Shakespeare about the events that took place around this Roman character and the conspiracy against him to bring him down from power. In this particular excerpt, where two of Caesar´s supporters (Antony and Octavius), are talking about what is going on in the conspiracy, led by Brutus and Cassius, we can see the conflict that exists between the social persona these two must present to the world, that of normal Roman citizens who know nothing about the plot so that their enemies do not know that they are on to them, and their selves, which are pushing them to act, to defend their leader and do something to change his fate. This is why the answer is the second one.
