Answer:

Article I establishes the legislative branch, which consists of the Senate and the House of Representatives. Overall, in this article, the Constitution makes Congress (the Senate and the House) the main legislative body of the United States, allowing it to make laws, create post offices, borrow money on the credit of the nation, and even declare wars. It establishes two-year terms for the members of the House and six-year terms for the members of the Senate. Furthermore, the article lists the required qualifications to serve in the House (to be at least 25 years of age, US citizens of at least 7 years, and live in the state he/she wants to represent) and in the Senate (to be at least 30 years of age, US citizen of 9 years, and live in the state he/she wants to represent). The article also makes the Vice President president of the Senate. It gives the House the power to originate all bills for raising revenue. The power of impeachment is also given to the House, but the Senate has the sole power to try all impeachments. Article II establishes the executive branch, making the President the leader of the branch. This is the branch of the government that "executes" and enforces the law. The article specifies that presidential terms should be four years. It describes the qualifications needed to be president - to be a "natural born" citizen, at least 35 years of age, and resident of the United States for at least 14 years. The Electoral College is established as the formal body that elects the President and Vice president. The article also makes the President the Commander in Chief and states that the President should give the State of the Union address. Article III establishes the judicial branch, creating the US Supreme Court and making it the court of last resort. Overall, the article provides an outline for the federal court system. It also provides Congress with the ability to determine the size and the general structure of the courts within the system. The article also gives the Supreme Court the original jurisdiction in the cases where a state is a party or which involve ambassadors, public ministers, and consuls.

Answer:

A figure of speech is a word or statement that is used for a certain rhetorical purpose, not in its literal meaning. Hyperbole, simile, personification, and metaphor are just four examples of the figures of speech. Hyperbole is an exaggerated statement that is not meant to be taken literally. Instead, writers tend to use them for the purpose of emphasis. Example: I am so hungry right now, I could eat an elephant! Simile is a statement that compares a thing of one kind with a thing of another kind. Similes generally include words like "as" or "like." Writers often use similes to make a description more vivid. Similarly to hyperbole, simile could be used for the purpose of emphasis. Example: Despite still being very young, the little boy was as brave as a lion. Personification is a statement that attributes a human characteristic to an object or something nonhuman. Writers use personifications to make their descriptions more vivid and unique for readers. Example: The wing was howling so loud all night that I had trouble falling asleep. Metaphor is a statement that describes an object or action in a non-literal way, describing one thing or concept by mentioning another. Metaphors are commonly used to make a comparison. However, unlike similes, metaphors do not use words "as" or "like" when making a comparison. Writers use metaphors to provide a better description of an idea and for rhetorical effect. Example: The snow is a white blanket that covered all the trees, grass, and roads in town.
