The Lady of Shalott

I have an event and have to find the quotation.

1) The handsome, dazzling figure of Sir Lancelot rides by in his shining armour. The Lady sees him in the mirror and can no longer bear her imprisonment.

The quotation I think it is, is:
A bow-shot from bower-eaves, He rode between the barley sheaves, The sun cam dazzling thr' the leaves, And flames upon the brazen greaves Of bold Sir Lancelot.
or
From the bank and from the river He flashed into the crystal mirror, 'Tirra lira,' by the river Sang Sir Lancelot.

I am not sure which one to use as one mentions dazzling and one mentions mirror.

2) The lady floats down the river past Camelot in a boat with her name written on the bows.

I have three answers for this, I am not sure which one I should use.

a)Down she came and found a boat Beneath a willow left afloat, And round the prow she wrote The Lady of Shalott.
or
b)Lying, robed in snowy white That loosely flew to left and right - The leaves upon her falling light - Thro' the noises of the night She floated down to Camelot:
or
c)Under the tower and balcony, By garden wall and gallery, A gleaming shape she floated by, Dead-pale between the houses high, Silent into Camelot.

I think it could be a) as it mentions the name on the boat, b) as it mentions She floated down to Camelot, or c) as it mentions A gleaming shape she floated by.

I have looked through the poem and I think these are the answers. Please could someone help me if I am wrong. Thanks

  1. 1) mentioned "mirror" and your second answer also has "mirror

    2) "floats" down the river / "boat? and "her name"
    Your first answer also has "boat" "down" and "The Lady of Shalott"

  2. Should I be looking at the words mirror or dazzling in the event to find the answer or should I be thinking of Lancelot as he rode down to Camelot. I am getting a bit confused.

    With the next one I am not sure whether I should be looking at the words name on boat, floated by, or floated down the river. I am also a bit confused on this. Please could you help and explain.
