      Roderigo

    Correct Answer
    C. Emilia
    Explanation
    Emilia attempts to comfort Cassio in the first scene of Act III and promises to plead his case for him. This is evident from the dialogue between Emilia and Cassio, where she expresses her sympathy towards him and assures him that she will speak to Desdemona on his behalf. Emilia's actions demonstrate her loyalty and support for Cassio, as she is willing to advocate for him and help him in his time of need.

    • D.

      Iago

    Correct Answer
    B. Desdemona
    Explanation
    In the third scene, Cassio is speaking to Desdemona. This can be inferred from the context of the play, as Cassio seeks Desdemona's help in convincing Othello to reinstate him as his lieutenant. Cassio trusts Desdemona and believes that she has influence over Othello, which is why he confides in her and seeks her assistance.

    Rate this question:

    • D.

      Neither

    Correct Answer
    C. Both
    Explanation
    Both Othello and Iago's arrival on the scene prompt Cassio to leave in haste. Othello's arrival causes Cassio to feel guilty and ashamed because he knows he has been involved in a brawl, which goes against his reputation as a respectable officer. On the other hand, Iago's arrival adds to Cassio's unease as he knows Iago is aware of the brawl and may use it against him to further his own sinister plans. Therefore, the presence of both Othello and Iago contributes to Cassio's decision to leave quickly.

    Iago is the character who says "beware, my lord, of jealousy; It is the green-eyed monster." This quote is from Shakespeare's play "Othello."
