    The sentence "The tree canopy was an umbrella sheltering us from the rain" is using a metaphor. It is comparing the tree canopy to an umbrella, suggesting that the tree canopy provided protection from the rain, just like an umbrella would. Metaphors are figures of speech that make a comparison between two unrelated things to create a vivid image or convey a certain meaning. In this case, the metaphor helps to emphasize the sheltering and protective nature of the tree canopy.

    Explanation
    The given sentence "The lightning lashed out in anger" is an example of personification because it attributes human qualities (anger) to a non-human object (lightning). Personification is a figure of speech that gives human characteristics to inanimate objects or abstract ideas. In this case, the lightning is being described as if it has human emotions and actions, which is personification.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because the words "school" and "cool" have the same ending sound "-ool." Rhyming words are words that have similar sounds at the end, and in this case, both words end with the "ool" sound, making them rhyme.

    Rate this question:

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is incorrect. The words "moth" and "clothes" do not rhyme. The "th" sound in "moth" is different from the "th" sound in "clothes." Therefore, the correct answer is false.
