Metaphor is exemplified as the figure of speech that implies the employment of a word or phrase that directly compares two distinct or unlikely things that have some kind of similarity or having some common attributes without the use of words 'like' or 'as'.
This device compares two divergent subjects on the grounds of a sole commonality in order to create an impact on the readers through such strengthening and revitalizing comparisons that proposes a specific effect on the content. For example: 'She was the moon', 'He was a lion roaring in the field', in these examples 'he' and 'she' are directly compared to 'moon' and 'lion' without using 'like' or 'as'. Thus, option B is the correct answer.
Hope this helped!
Ex- "America is a melting pot"
It's comparing two different things.
the difference between an explicit and implicit meaning is that the explicit meaning of a poem is that the detail is exactly defined. nothing is left to interpretation. an implicit meaning is an implied meaning. kabir's poetry is both explicit and implicit in that it can be interpreted on different levels. the explicit meaning leaves nothing to interpretation while the implicit meaning leaves lots open to interpretation. an example of this is found in the poem "rumi and the spiritual lover".
