    Hello Sajda,

    Hyperbole is deliberate exaggeration, in order to gain an effect.

    Here are some examples:

    1. She's the most beautiful girl in the world.
    2. I'd walk a million miles for one of your smiles.
    3. All the perfumes in Arabia will not sweeten this little hand.

    Best wishes,

    MrP
