    Figures of speech: Simile is a comparison with like or as.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Simile is indeed a figure of speech that involves comparing two things using the words "like" or "as." It allows the speaker or writer to make a vivid comparison between two different concepts, objects, or ideas. By using similes, we can enhance our descriptions and engage the reader's imagination by creating visual and sensory connections. Therefore, the statement "Figures of speech: Simile is a comparison with like or as" is correct.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement "Metaphor is an obvious exaggeration" is incorrect. A metaphor is a figure of speech that compares two unrelated things, highlighting their similarities. It is not necessarily an exaggeration, but rather a way to make a descriptive or imaginative comparison. Metaphors can be subtle or obvious, depending on the context and the intention of the speaker or writer. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

In this case, "choo-chika" is a sound that imitates a train whistle or a similar sound. Therefore, it is a clear example of onomatopoeia.
