Please limit the number of questions you are asking in one submission. Bassanio's choice has nothing to do with greed or ownership. Morocco loves the idea of gold, status,and riches. Aragon likes silver because of money. Bassanio refuses gold because he knows that "all that glisters is not gold." He refuses silver because  "common drudge 'tween man and man."He chooses lead because the outside frequently does not tell what is inside thus a person's true worth lies within.
