Answers

Answer 1
Answer: The answer is D. If I give in to this foolish journey, I will be wasting my time.

This is the part where Dante is asking the muses why he was chosen for this journey. He doubts his worthiness and capabilities.

There are some clues also in the lines.

"surrender myself" = giving in. 
"going there," and "undertaking," is best described by the word journey (as compared to the other choices)
"folly." means foolish.
Answer 2
Answer: D. If I give in to this foolish journey, I will be wasting my time.

Dante was doubtful ofhis worthiness to the mission and is indecisive about the journeyhe is about to make. He was feeling insecure about his ability to succeed inthe expedition. In Canto, 34-35, he asked pleadingly or advice.
