An example of verbal irony is:
A. Macbeth saying, "O, yet I do repent for my fury, that I did kill them."
B. Macduff referring to Lady MacBeth as "O gentle Lady."
C. Macduff saying "O horror, horror, horror."

I think it's D?

    I disagree. Verbal irony is saying words that have opposite meanings.

    When someone tells you something unbelievable, and you say, "Yeah! Right!" you're exhibiting verbal irony.
