Similies use the words “like” or “as.”
Metaphors compare one thing as if it were another thing, usually using a “to be” word (is, are, was, were, etc.) Alliteration using the same beginning sound over and over.

#3 Uses the word “were”
#6 look for the sentence with the word “like”

#4: paraphrase means a similar sounding sentence. Hint: fracas means fight and sward means field.

#7 and #9: The theme is the message of the whole story, a whole idea; a motif is the stuff you use to tell that message, the actions, words, etc. For example, image the theme for your bedroom “I love animals.” One person may choose a jungle motif and decorate the room with jungle animals; another may chooose a forest motif and decorate the room with forest animals; the message or theme is still the same, but the motifs are different.

The Civil War was fought between the blue and the gray. The Union army wore blue; the Rebel army wore grey.
