Re(1): Nasociliary nerve

The long ciliary nerve is the sympathetic division. Long ciliary is a branch of the nasociliary of the fifth cranial nerve ophthalmic division.
The short ciliary nerve is the parasympathetic division. Short ciliary comes about after the ciliary ganglion and is a continuation of the 3rd nerve (via the E-W nucleus).

There are some sympathetic fibres in the short ciliary nerve too, which have passed through the ciliary ganglion but do not make a synapse within the ganglion - they just pass through.

The Ramus communicans is just a sensory component of the nasociliary.

Short ciliary is not a branch of CN V.

Hope it goes well. Apologies if anything I have said is incorrect
