While a simile and a metaphor both compare two things, a simile compares them by using 'like' or 'as' and a metaphor does not. An example of a simile is "the food was as cold as ice" and an example of a metaphor is "he is such a baby" :D
True. A simile on the other hand would say “time is like a thief.”
The difference between metaphors and similes is that similes hit you over the head with the comparison by using explicit words such as “like” or “as,” -- When Jon Bon Jovi sings “My heart is like an open highway,” that's a simile because he used the word “like” to directly make the comparison
A simile is a phrase that uses the words like or as in a sentence to compare two or more things.

A metaphor is a phrase / a way to compare two or more completely different things without using like or as in a sentence.

Here is an example for a Simile : Wow , he is as fast as a cheetah when running. 

Here is an example of a Metaphor : Whoa , that dude is a computer when it comes to math.

I really hope that you enjoyed my answers , and examples :)

Have a very nice day =)

The correct answer is C. A simile uses as or like to make a comparison and a metaphor doesn't.


Both simile and metaphor are figures of speech widely used in literature such as poetry to create a comparison between two ideas, concepts, people, etc. This means they both had the same objective and therefore are used similarly. Despite this, simile differs from metaphor because in simile the comparison is explicitly stated by the use of words such as "like" or "as" for example in "Your eyes are like stars", but this is not necessary in the case of metaphors, for example, "Your eyes were stars" is a metaphor.
