The simile is a literary figure used in texts such as poetry to convey a deep meaning by comparing two or more ideas, objects or elements. This literary figure can be identified because different from metaphor, it uses explicit words to establish a comparison; this includes the words "like" and "as". This implies the sentences that contain simile are
Sanjay, in his suit and tie, stood out like a sore thumb-because in this the suit and tie are compared to a sore thumb using "like"
Anika’s hands were shaking like leaves as she got up to give her presentation- because the way Anika shakes is compared to the movement of leaves using "as"
The finch was as busy as a bee, building her nest-because "as" is used to compare the finch and the bee
The cabin stood as a solemn sentinel on the shore of the lake- because "as" creates a comparison between the cabin and a solemn sentinel
The Fed does indeed do this and it is called the Reserve Requirement. It is a percentage of deposits that banks are to keep with the Fed and it has the effect of reducing the amount of money that banks have available to loan out to entities.

My mother saw a dancing bear By the schoolyard, a day in June The keeper stood with chain and bar And whistle-pipe and played a tune. The bruin lifted up its head. And lifted up its dusty feet, And all the children laughed to see It caper in the summer heat. They watched as for the Queen it died They watched it march. They watched it halt. They heard the keeper as he cried, “Now, roly-poly! Somersault” And then my mother said, there came The keeper with a begging-cup, The bear with burning coat of fur, Shaming the laughter to a stop. They paid a penny for the dance, But what they saw was not the show; Only, in bruin’s aching eyes, Far-distant forests, and the snow.
