    go along the lines of she saved her money like scrooge from the movie did.

    Question 10,
    (I had trouble on this one at first) It's a part to whole analogy, so a tire is part of a bicycle just like a window is a part of a house

    Question 11,
    Remarkable has a positive connotation making something seem cool (search up the definition for denotation) Peculiar can have a neutral connotation or have a negative connotation for example something seeming weird and suspicious. (search definition for denotation)

    Question 12,
    The purpose of figurative language is to help make connections to things even if their not there. (I searched it up on google and it said something like that) An author might use it to help readers understand things in different interesting ways.

    Question 13,
    The two I saw were Rhyme and repetition. Repetition as it repeats the word 'the' a lot, and the first and last sentences are the same. Rhyme because every two sentences the end word rhymes with each other.
