    Personification is giving character or emotion to unreal objects.

    Can your alarm clock shout at you ? Does it have a mouth or voice? No.

    No, not C. Your alarm clock cannot literally shout at you. Which choice is that ?

    No, I already said D was incorrect. It's either A or B since C and D are wrong.

    ... No. The correct answer is A. You might want to review personification for future reference.
