Figurative Language Exam: Trivia Quiz!

Could you use figurative language in your life? When you are a writer, or even if you are speaking, it is good to use language that draws in the other person. An example of this would be, “She is as clever as a fox. ” Foxes are considered clever because they can be devious and do things to lure someone toward them. They are tricksters; however, this quiz is the real deal.
