Read the first stanza from Frost's poem "Birches."
It's when I'm weary of considerations,
And life is too much like a pathless wood
Where your face burns and tickles with the cobwebs
Broken across it, and one eye is weeping
From a twig's having lashed across it open

explanation: the word frost means coldness and something covered by ice crystals but looking at the comparison made in this text, we can understand that the word frost could mean anger, annoyance and bitterness, due to the fact that the person is stating that he/she is feeling weary of considerations therefore he/she compares life to a pathless wood.
The answer is (D). simile
It compares 2 or more things using the word like or as.
In the first sentence, the poet wishes that the trees are bent due to a boy playing there and swinging on the branches. But the second sentence shows a possible reality, where the cold weather is the one that destroys the birches.

the correct answer is c. usually the language, and its emotional insight, that is how feelings and attitudes are expressed through language, are not quite present in film adaptations. despite that, it is a factor that a fan may either not notice or not care much about, especially compared to the other factors.
