Anil17Hi, can someone please approve my answers to the following similies:

Example: That work is easy.

That work is as easy as shelling peas.

My answers are in red font.

1. The grass was green. (as snooker baize) ok

2. The sands were level. (as a crossing, or bridge or playing-field)

3. The ground was hard. (as iron or nails) either, but the first is better.

4. The trees were high. (as a kite) hmmm - ok

5. The train was slow. (as a snail or tortoise) either

6. The children were happy. (as a king, or school-boy or lark) you have plural children, so whatever is used must also be plural

In all of them, you need to insert "as" : The grass was as green as snooker baize

Hi Doll

My apologies.

I did put my suggested answers in the brackets. I just forgot to highlight them in red font as suggested.

Just a future point, I do always put up my suggested responses to the questions.
They are not in a complete sentence and I thoguht you didn't give us your choices sorry. Emotion: smile

Just my two cents:

1. The grass was green. (as snooker baize) I have no idea.

2. The sands were level. (as a crossing, or bridge or playing-field) I have no idea.

3. The ground was hard. (as iron or nails) iron sounds okay to me.

4. The trees were high. (as a kite) Kite didn't seem okay to me but I couldn't find something more proper either. I think " Dublex house" may be okay. Emotion: big smile

5. The train was slow. (as a snail or tortoise) tortoise sounds okay to me.

6. The children were happy. (as a king, or school-boy or lark) I would say victorous knight or winner footballers or exultant army Emotion: smile

Hi Clive

You answered a couple of my posts earlier; many thanks for that.

I wonder whether you could please cast your eye over this response, and in my other Post, "Similies Part 2 - Adverbs
