the answer would be "simile"
explanation : "as" is comparison words
The correct answer is C. Simile
Simile is a literary figure in which two things are compared, by using words such as "like" or "as" that establishes a connection between two elements that would not usually be connected, this figure is used in literature, including poems to make descriptions more vivid, this implies through the use of simile the reader can understand better what the writer refers to, as it makes texts more descriptive. In the case of ""I wandered lonely as a cloud/That floats on high o'er vales and hills" the author of this poem compares himself and the way he wanders and floats to the way cloud do over vales and hills, also, he establishes the similarity between himself and the clouds by using the word "as", this does also create an important descriptive style that makes the reader understand and imagine what the poet wrote. Thus, as the author is comparing himself to the cloud, uses "as" to establish a connection and aims at describing two things by stating their similarities this is an example of a simile.
ich statement best shows a problem in travels with charley?
one sharp difficulty presented itself. in the intervening twenty-five years my name had become reasonably well known.
this being so, my trip demanded that i leave my name and my identity at home.
i had to go alone and i had to be self-contained, a kind of casual turtle carrying his house on his back.

1. read the following excerpt from franklin d. roosevelt's "fireside chat 19":
on the other side of the picture, we must learn also to know that guerilla warfare against the germans in, let us say serbia or norway, us; that a successful russian offensive against the germans us; and that british successes on land or sea in any part of the world strengthen our hands.
remember always that germany and italy, regardless of any formal declaration of war, consider themselves at war with the united states at this moment just as much as they consider themselves at war with britain or russia. and germany puts all the other republics of the americas into the same category of enemies. the people of our sister republics of this hemisphere can be honored by that fact.
the true goal we seek is far above and beyond the ugly field of battle. when we resort to force, as now we must, we are determined that this force shall be directed toward ultimate good as well as against immediate evil. we americans are not destroyers — we are builders.
