Answer:

Conflict in a story provides opposing sides of a situation and allows readers to gain character perspective. Readers gain insight into a character through their interactions of a given situation and how it relates to the overall theme of the story. Conflict provides tension and propels the story and helps keep the interest of the audience.

Question:

What types of figurative language are being used in the following sentences? She was as quiet as a mouse. I could hear the buzzing, so I knew there was a bee's nest around somewhere. Laughter is the music of the soul. The shopping trip cost me a million dollars.

Answer:

Using the key words in the sentences will help you to identify the types of figurative language being used in each of the sentences. 1. "Quiet as a mouse" - Simile- comparing two things using the word like or as. In this sentence the girl is being compared to the mouse because she is quiet and the two are connected with the word, as. 2. Buzzing- Onomatopeia- the formation of the word buzz sounds like the sound the bees make. 3. 'Laughter is music" - Metaphor- comparing two things without the word like or as. In this sentence laughter is being compared to music but they are not connected with the word like or as. 4. "million dollars"- Hyperbole- an exaggeration of the facts. The fact is that the shopping trip was expensive but it likely did not cost a "million dollars".
