Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Personification is just giving a human like trait to an inanimate object. For example: The wind whispered to me. ~Everyone knows wind can't whisper The tree hugged me in tough times. ~We know trees can't hug. Do you understand?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1An analogy is a figure of speech that equates two things to explain something unfamiliar by highlighting its similarities to something that is familiar. This figure of speech is commonly used in spoken and written English. For example: Questions and answers, crying and laughing, etc.  See more at: http://fos.iloveindia.com/#sthash.uhyISFB3.dpuf
