Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2A hyperbole is an over or under exaggeration to describe something. In this case the picture is a child carrying a heavy bag. The quote says "This backpack weighs a ton!" Which is an over exaggeration, because the bag does not weigh that much. Rather the exclamation should say, "This backpack is very heavy!". That would be more accurate.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1A hyperbole is an extreme exaggeration used to make a point in writing. The backpack the child is wearing does not obviously weigh a ton, but it is very heavy. By saying that this backpack weighs a ton you're implying that the backpack is very heavy in an exaggerated manner. It doesn't weigh a ton.
