The answer to this is C. Personification is one of the figures of speech that people use whenever they would like to describe something extreme that people may not understand immediately. In order for people to understand the emotion that is being conveyed, the characteristic will be compared to something that is considered non-human.

There are also times when the characteristic of a person is described to something that is abstract. There are also instances when animals are being compared to something that persons are known to do. If you would read different literary pieces, it is very likely that you will come across sentences that show this type of figure of speech.

This is considered to be a simile. This is a type of figure of speech wherein something or someone is compared to another person or item that is completely different from the former. For example, the sentence can be used this way: The rat was as brave as a lion. The lion is known to be ferocious and very courageous animal.

The rat is known to be meek but intelligent. Still, the rat is very different from the lion but they are being compared with each other. The person speaking is trying to say that the rat has shown bravery at some point in time. There are still other similes that people may not realize that they use all the time.

Figurative speech is often used in literature. You can find them in poetry mostly and in some short stories. They are used in order to compared nouns or actions and it makes it more specific. Some of the main types of figurative language or speech include similes, personification, hyperbole and metaphors. A simile is a comparison between two unlike things using like or as. A metaphor is a comparison between two unlike things not using like or as. Personification is giving non-human things human characteristics.

A hyperbole is an exaggeration of the truth. In the quote, there are actually two types of figurative language because sometimes a metaphor can be personification because the two things beings compared could be where one thing is a human thing and the other is not human.

The correct answer is C
Personification is the act of attributing human characteristics to non-human or inanimate objects. The most appropriate answer to this question would have been apostrophe rather than personification.

Apostrophe is a part of speech that addresses inanimate objects as if there were present and alive. Example of such is – Death! Where is thy sting? O Grave! Where is thy victory?

But since apostrophe is not present in the options above, personification is the closet to the best answer.
Simile is the comparison of one thing with another thing of a different kind – As calm as a Dove
Metaphor is applying a word or phrases to an object to which is not applicable – Love is a battlefield.

This must be analyzed in order to come up with the right answer. The answer to this is B. The figure of speech that is present here is a metaphor. This is apparent because of the words that are used. The sentence states: “My love is a red, red rose.” The fact that it used the word means that it is a metaphor. The comparison is directly stated.

This is different from a simile wherein the word may be compared to another word. If this is a simile, the sentence should have read, “My love is LIKE a red, red rose.” This only means that love is being compared to the color of the rose. Since a direct comparison is used, this is more of a metaphor.
