What is the rhetorical purpose? (A Rose for of the description of Miss Emily)?

I have been asked this question and I am finding it difficult to pinpoint an answer. I presume it must be c) or e) but I cannot decide. An explanation of the correct choice would be very helpful.

"She looked bloated, like a body long submerged in motionless water...." The rhetorical purpose of this description is to compare Miss Emily with

a.) a large aquatic creature.

b.) a dead body submerged in formaldehyde.

c.) an obese corpse.

d.) a decomposing fish.

e.) a drowning victim.
