If I were you, I would want to start off by going through the book and noting down examples of literary terms, making sure I take down the quote and page number. Then, having identified about ten literary terms, I would then construct my test, offering about four responses to each question, and giving the phrase which contains the literary term in the question itself. For example, looking at the very opening of the novel in the first page of Chapter One, we can see the following example of a literary term:

As soon as the light in the bedroom went out there was a stirring and a fluttering all through the farm buildings.

Here, clearly the word "fluttering" is an example of onomatopoeia, because it enacts the sound of the action it represents. Your first question could therefore be:

1) The use of the word "fluttering" on page 1 of the novel is an example of:

a) simile

b) metaphor

c) onomatopoeia

d) personification

Hopefully this will give you an example that you can follow to create the rest of your test. Good luck and have fun!
