The lines that uses a simile in excerpt from Book 13 of Homer's Odyssey are the following:
1. Like a fair virgin in her beauty's bloom
2. But this to me? who, like thyself, excel In arts of counsel and dissembling well.
This is the line that suggest a future which humans will inhabit distant planets, "Now we see further. If the Martians can reach Venus, there is no reason to suppose that the thing is impossible for men, and when the slow cooling of the sun makes this earth uninhabitable, as at last it must do, it may be that the thread of life that has begun here will have streamed out and caught our sister planet within its toils." This phrase seem to tell that we as a human being make those impossible to happen but we should think what was the consequences of this all that we've done specially to the planet earth were we live.

The correct answer to which lines in this excerpt of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's "The Song of Hiawatha" use four sets of trochee is C) All four lines.
In fact, "The Song of Hiawatha" is a perfect example of trochaic tetrameter. This concept refers to a line with four trochaic feet: a stressed or long syllable followed by an unstressed or short syllable. Actually, providing that English poetic tradition is mostly iambic instead of trochaic, it makes trochaic meter sound weird.
In the mentioned excerpt, if we highlight the stressed syllables to show the trochaic tetrameter, this would be the result:
YE who LOVE the HAUNTS of NAture
LOVE the SUNshine OF the MEAdow
LOVE the SHAdow OF the FOrest
LOVE the WIND aMONG the BRANches.
