      False

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    The statement is explaining that the word "fill" is pronounced as "fi-ul" with a small final L sound. This means that the L sound at the end of the word is pronounced softly. Therefore, the correct answer is True, as it accurately describes the pronunciation of the word "fill".

  • 3. 

    A final L is pronounced fully, like a first letter L.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false. A final L is not pronounced fully like a first letter L. In English, when an L is at the end of a word, it is usually pronounced as a dark L or a velarized L. This means that the tip of the tongue does not touch the roof of the mouth as it does with a first letter L. Instead, the back of the tongue touches the soft part of the roof of the mouth, creating a different sound.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    It is possible to make a small L sound without touching the tongue to the top of the mouth. This can be achieved by placing the tongue against the back of the top front teeth and allowing air to pass through the sides of the tongue.

    Some individuals may find it difficult to comprehend or remember certain combinations of letters, such as PL, while having no difficulty with other combinations like CL. This suggests that people may have varying levels of proficiency or familiarity with different combinations of letters. Therefore, it can be concluded that the statement is true.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The given statement is true because the word "wheel" is commonly pronounced as "wee-ul" or "weeyul" in English. The "wh" combination in English is often pronounced as a "w" sound, as in words like "what" or "when." Therefore, the correct answer is true.

  • 10.

    • A.

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
