    "old _____ ram"

    Explanation
    The phrase "old _____ ram" suggests that we are looking for a word to fill in the blank that describes the type of ram being referred to. The options given are "general black" and "black." Both options could potentially be correct, as "general black" could refer to a specific type of ram breed, while "black" could simply refer to the color of the ram. Without further context, it is difficult to determine which option is the intended answer.

    "_________ Desdemona"

    Explanation
    The correct answer is "general Sweet, Sweet." This answer suggests that the missing word could be a title or a name that is followed by the word "Sweet." The repetition of "Sweet" indicates that it is a descriptor or a nickname for the person or entity being referred to. "General" is a possible title that could be used before a person's name, so it fits in this context.

    "By heaven I rather would have _______ ______ ________"

    Explanation

The phrase "jealousy been his hangman" suggests that the speaker believes jealousy to be a powerful and destructive force that can bring about someone's downfall. The repetition of "been his hangman" emphasizes the speaker's desire for someone else to be responsible for the negative consequences, rather than themselves.
