    So for 1. I think it could be either A or D, but I'm going more for D.

    Still not sure about 14

    1. No. That choice has a simile. MC, please study the difference between a simile and a metaphor.

    In fact, you need to do a lot more studying to answer these questions correctly.

    Okay, okay, I got it. B.

    -MC

  • English 2 - ,

    Yes. After three tries, you have 1. correct. :-(

  • English 2 - ,

    :/ Sorry, not sure where my mind is right now.

    Last try on these:

    10. D?

    14. D?

    Thanks
