The reference is to genes. If an entire race or group of people are exterminated their collective gene pool is eliminated from the face of the earth.
The Ottoman Turks tried to eliminate the Armenian people at least those that lived in Turkey. This was a genocide.
The attempted extermination of the Jews by the Nazi's in World War II is a famous example.
The reduction of the native Indian population in the United States was genocide. The slogan the only good Indian is a dead Indian help to promote the genocide.
So genocide is the mass murder of a race or group of people with the goal of eliminating the gene pool of that race or group of people.

Internal conflict is essentially a conflict that takes place in the mind of a character. It is manifested by a character being unsure about some decision. Some examples can include
The key realization here is that internal conflicts take place in the character's mind, as opposed to external conflicts, that can be between two people, "Man vs. Nature", or even "Man vs. Fate".
Hope this helps!
Lady Capulet follows Capulet’s lead.
If you mean Act 3 Scene 5:
When Juliet tells her mother to delay the marriage between Juliet and Paris, Lady Capulet just says to ask her father.
Her father reacted terribly to Juliet’s request and threatened to disown her and throw her into the streets. Juliet, upset, turns to her mother for support and help, and Lady Capulet sides with Capulet and storms off as well.
Yes. In poetry, there are no rules. A poem can use a semicolon in any way it wants. Often, if a poet uses a semicolon, the effect may be to provide a more emphatic pause than a comma or to give a sense of stasis like a period but instead using a semicolon to indicate a higher level of connection between the ideas it separates.
There is no guarantee a poetic semicolon is separating two independent clauses, as it should be used in prose (or "normal writing").

When you are obligated it something that you have to do.
Because it is something that you are required or committed to do the connotation is that it is not necessarily something you want to do.
More than needed.
In the sentence "This is a single unpaired sock" there is redundancy in the form of twice saying the same (also known as tautology).
A person can be "made redundant", meaning he is no longer needed for a certain job at a certain office or factory (there are too many in that job at that place).
Calling a person redundant (overall) would not be a very nice thing to say: It would mean the person is good for nothing and might as well die.
