    Part A:1. A sofa, unlike human beings, does not 'weep' in the real world.  The sentence personifies the sofa in such a way to show it has been worn and may not be able to sustain the pressure from human bodies.2. An apple tree, unlike human beings, does not 'feel tired' < 厭倦 >.  The sentence personifies the apple tree in such a way to show the apple tree bears too many apples and may not be able to sustain their weight.3.  Wind, unlike human beings, does not get 'angry.'  The sentence personifies the wind in such a way to show its great strength.In all the above three examples, all the inanimate existences are described as if they are emotional.  That explains why the three sentences all serves as examples of personification.Part B:1. The mirror was ashamed of projecting the image of an old ugly monster.2. The present felt deserted by everyone in this crule world.回答者:落日騎士作者:落日騎士。ⓒ2005- 引用前請先知會本人,並請加註此行訊息
