Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I know what the answer is. Why do you think its either one of those two? Think closely about what each of those words mean. What must specifically be stated (or happen w/i the context of the phrase) must happen?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think its allusion because in metaphor, ur comparing two things... so i think its allusion am i right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I believe it should be metaphor because there is no reference to places, events, books, or art... but that is just my opinion.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2An allusion gives is when you reference places, events, books or art...so for example "I am no Prince Hamlet" is an allusion because you are comparing yourself to a literary work (aka book). Another example could be "Chocolate is my Achilles heal". Here you are comparing yourself to a character in a book.
