I believe the correct answer is a. “caves” and “man”.
Proportion is the figure of speech that indicates the repetition of vowels in the adjacent words in the line. With this in mind, the words from these lines “Kubla Khan”, Samuel Taylor Coleridge use the words “caves” and “man” to create unity (both words repeat the “e” sound).
