Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

Help with these 5 questions!!!

1. What are some possible reasons that Rosencrantz and Guildenstern begin confusing their cliches following Gertrude's, Claudius', and Polonius' exit?

2. What is ironic about Rosencrantz's remark that it is "all stopping to a death, it's boding to a depth, stepping to a head, it's all heading to a dead stop-?

3. To what does Guildenstern's remark "Give us this day our daily mask" allude, and why might the rewriting of this allusion be significant within the play?

4. How does the question game contribute to the existentialist framework?

5. In what way is Rosencrantz's questioning of Guildenstern- portraying Hamlet- an example of dramatic irony?
