  2. After googling each word I have come up with this.

    A simile contains "like" or "As" so that rules out B.

    According to yourdictionary.com, Symbolism can mean a figure of speech where something has another meaning other than its literal meaning. I don't think C is correct either.

    According to Google.com, personification is the attribution of a personal nature or human characteristics to something nonhuman, or the representation of an abstract quality in human form.

    So I am changing my answer to D. Personification. Is that correct?
