    It doesn't seem to make sense. What's the source?

    PS: We don't do homework here.

    No, this is no homework. My son had this question in exams which he couldn't answer.

    Re: Identify the Figure of Speecch

    That is called alliteration, repeated use of the same consonant in words.
    But the sentence does not make sense.

    I appreciate your help. in advance.
    See my corrections above in red.

    Your sentence does not make any sense in English.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
