What type of figurative language appears in the following sentence?

The computer moaned and groaned as it rendered the large video file.

A. Simile <--- my answer
B. Metaphor
C. Personification
D. Symbol

I chose A because the sentence uses "as", but I'm not sure that correct.

  1. Writeacher

    No.

    The mere presence of "as" or "like" does not automatically indicate simile.

    Look up the four possibilities here:

    Let me know what you decide.

    @Writeacher so it would be personification? The computer is non-human making human noises?

  3. 420blazeit

    B. Personification because the computer is making human noises.
