Which of the following describes one way Decius manipulates the meaning of Calphurnia's dream in order to appeal to Caesar's enlarged ego and persuade him to go to the capitol?


Did run pure blood, and many lusty Romans
Came smiling and did bathe their hands in it (2.2.78-79)


So many smiling Romans bathed,
signifies that from you great Rome shall suck
Reviving blood (2.2.86-88)


The senate have concluded
To give this day a crown to mighty Caesar (2.2.93-94)


If Caesar hide himself, shall they not whisper
'Lo, Caesar is afraid'? (2.2.100-101)


If you shall send them word you will not come,
Their minds may change. (2.2.95-96)
