    Answer: The right answer is the 2) "Which done, she took the fruits of my advice; "

    Explanation: Just to elaborate a little on the answer, it can be added that in this famous passage from Shakespeare's Hamlet it is possible to identify a metaphor in the second line, where the words "fruit" and "advice" have been linked or compared. A metaphor is a figure of speech that makes a comparison between two things that are unrelated, but that may share common features, with the goal of appealing to the senses and the imagination of the reader. Advice does not produce or give fruits. You can give someone a piece of advice, or just advice, but not a fruit of it. However, by saying "the fruits of my advice" the speaker sounds more compelling and graphic - you are forced to establish a connection that, in another context, would not exist.
