: Hi,

: Can you please help me complete the following phrases:
: 1. As weak as ....
: 2. As agile as ....

: Is it water for the first and monkey for the second?

For the first phrase, "as weak as water" and "as weak as a kitten" are both conventional. If you're completing a school assignment, I suppose the conventional answer is what's wanted. In original writing, it's best to think up one's own comparisons.
