I believe its C or D. What do you think?
for a second i thought it was B but idk
im not sure either um lets see hold on
Now that i think of it B seems the most accurate answer.

@marihelenh do you have any idea of what it could be?
My guess is that it is C. You gave the definition of it, and some examples are like suits refers to business men. Gray beard refers to an old man. Boots refer to soldiers. In the poem, ragged claws is meant to refer to a crab, which is a synecdoche.
