mom, i wanna pee, @Gab02282 you missed this possibility, though, you're right. a set of window panes is a symbol that can indicate the door, our mind, a tornado, or an 'intruder' is just about breaking in our door(mind) so we feel anxious, scared about being invaded, terrible huh? So we know this beautiful use of simile will leads us to the answer 'A'. If possible, you can also sign a course on Semiotics next semester, i reckon.
