Can someone please tell me what, if any, figure of speech is used here?

"Anyone who calls a spade a spade should be compelled to use one."

Simile
Metaphor
Personification
Analogy
Hyperbole
None of these

    I don't see any of these figures of speech here.

  • English -

    Neither do I. I was confused because someone said it was an analogy, but it doesn't seem to have one. I just wanted to make sure, so thank you!

  • English -

    The answer was none of these. Thanks again!

  • English -

    You're welcome.
