Answers:
Is this for homework? ...Lol... J/k But I'll just do three examples... getting late for moi! ^^'

Simile: is a comparison that uses LIKE or AS
1. Her eyes were like pools of water.
2. His mother moved like a shark as she went through the discount sections.
3. His fortitude was like a strong tower.

Metaphor: comparisons without using LIKE or AS
1. This time, her words were swords that pierced his heart.
2. His thoughts were a maze of confusion: she could not read them. (That was a weird one...)
3. Life is but a vapor in the wind.

Personification: (This is fun) attributing a personage to, commonly, inanimate objects
1.The candle light danced about the darkened room.
2. The trees whispered in the wind.
3. Fear teased her helpless mind.

Hyperbole: (I like this one) Exaggeration used to make a point or some effect
1. I will wait for all eternity so that I can see him once again.
2. His love are as deep as an ocean.
3. Her braces shined as bright as the sun.
