  1. No. It's not a simile. A simile directly compares one thing to another, "Softly, as in a morning sunrise", or "He ran like the wind."

  3. It looks to me like there are two kinds of figurative languages in that part of a sentence. I think that the main one is the judge without a courtroom is being compared to speaking a language formally. The reason that the answer isn't B. smilie, is because "you spoke spanish formal as your father" should say you spoke Spanish as formal as the judge without a courtroom. Since it is not direct, and the word "as" is used not in the way a simile would use the word "as", yes, the answer is:
    A. Metaphor.
    Hope this helps! :)
