Question 2 - 11th Grade English Language Arts and Literacy: Reading Practice Test for the SBAC

Reread the last paragraph of the attached passage (reproduced here).

“In fact, the boat might almost as well have gone to St. Jo by land, for she was walking most of the time, anyhow—climbing over reefs and clambering over snags patiently and laboriously all day long. The captain had said she was a “bully” boat, and all she wanted was more “shear” and a bigger wheel. I thought she wanted a pair of stilts, but I had the deep sagacity not to say so.”

Which literary device does the narrator use in this paragraph?
