    Explanation
    The correct answer is "The truck groaned under the strain of its load." This sentence suggests that the truck is carrying a heavy load, causing it to make a groaning sound. The word "groaned" indicates that the truck is struggling or experiencing difficulty due to the weight it is carrying.

  • 14. 

    The big beach blanket blew in the wind. 

    Explanation
    Alliteration is a stylistic literary device that involves the repetition of initial consonant sounds in words that are close to each other. In this sentence, the repetition of the "b" sound in "big," "beach," "blanket," and "blew" creates a musical effect and draws attention to the phrase, enhancing the vividness of the imagery. This technique is often used to add beauty and rhythm to the text, making it more engaging and memorable for the reader.

    Explanation
    After presenting her report to the class, Sue felt a sense of relief and satisfaction. The phrase "light as a feather" is often used to describe a feeling of weightlessness and freedom from burdens. This suggests that Sue's hard work paid off and she was able to share her work with confidence and ease.

  • 25. 

    The storm took the house in its teeth and shook it. 

    Explanation
    The phrase "took the house in its teeth and shook it" is a figurative expression to describe the intensity and force of the storm. It implies that the storm was so powerful that it grabbed hold of the house and violently shook it. The use of the word "teeth" adds to the imagery of the storm's strength and ferocity.
