A hyperbole is a trope in which a point is expressed in a greatly exaggerated way.
Example: “It was so cold outside, I saw polar bears wearing jackets”
An understatement is the presentation of something as being smaller, worse, or less important than it actually is.
Example: “It is a bit cold today” when temperature is 5 below.
