This question is based on the following excerpt from a short story.
Inside the bus, in his summer Class-A uniform with its brass glitter and infantry-blue shoulder cordon, Jamie Sabin was going home. Fort Benning would be a fading dream; Preston, Virginia, a place unknown, his future. He was in between, fumbling with puzzle pieces, making up stories about the real Jamie Sabin. Each of these he set adrift like a paper boat on a shifting sea of daydreams. He did that encased in the drone and shudder of diesel pistons and hissing tires. Jamie Sabin was going home to a place unknown.
7. In this paragraph, the paper boat is a A. simile for Jamie's past.
B. metaphor for daydreams.
C. metaphor for Jamie's past and future.
D. simile for stories Jamie makes up about himself.
