The correct answer to this question is B. The use of words with the same vowel and consonant. In a poem, rhymes occur at the end of the line. An example is a popular nursery rhyme that children are growing up learning. It says roses are red; violets are blue.

Sugar is sweet, and so are you. In this poem, the words blue, and you rhyme. When they have spoken aloud, they sound just the same. Rhymes are not always just one word. Sometimes, they can be two words. An example is the phrases sat in and that in. They are two words that are rhyme.
