Which statement illustrates the use of metaphor? The savage wind roared and viciously tore away the man’s coat. The girl believed that life is just a bowl of cherries. Flowers of every hue and scent crowded the small window box. Her long blonde hair and fantastic smile drew admirers.

    The definition of metaphor is to say something that means something much deeper, when you are using the simplified version. It's like writing the fraction 1/2 when it can also mean 24/48. An example of a metaphor would be using a light in the distance as a symbol of hope.

    Well no not quite. It's descriptive but it doesn't really suggest a deeper meaning, or states that there is one.
