Read the paragraph. the storm continued for hours. the thunder was so loud that it was deafening. lightening flashed in the sky, taking the night from completely black to light. the world was coming to an end. how does the use of figurative language the reader understand the paragraph’s meaning? 1 by the reader understand how scary the storm is 2 by the reader recognize how long the storm lasts 3 by the reader compare the storm with an object 4 by the reader remember a similar storm
I'd say it's one. Process of elimination can help you here:
There is no mention of how long the storm lasts, or anything comparing it to an object: the description references only events. Similarly, there's no mention of another storm or any address to the reader, leaving one as the best answer.
Further, phrases calling out the intensity of the lightning and saying that "the world was coming to an end" are meant to evoke fear-the end of the world is an inherently scary thing.
