Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The A sounds in "after," "class," "pattern" and "travel" are the same.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The A sounds in "after," "class," "pattern," and "travel" are all pronounced the same way. This means that the vowel sound in these words is identical, despite the different spellings of the letter A. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The "ai" sound in "again" is the same "ai" sound in "rain."

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The "ai" sound in "again" is not the same as the "ai" sound in "rain." In "again," the "ai" sound is pronounced as a long "a" sound, while in "rain," the "ai" sound is pronounced as a diphthong, combining the sounds of "a" and "i." Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    "Problem," "product," "stop" and "done" have the same O sound.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because "problem" and "product" have different vowel sounds. "Problem" has the short o sound, while "product" has the short u sound. Similarly, "stop" and "done" also have different vowel sounds, with "stop" having the short o sound and "done" having the long o sound. Therefore, these words do not have the same O sound.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The O's have the same sound in "contain," "complete" and "color."

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because in the words "contain," "complete," and "color," the letter "o" is pronounced the same way. It has the same sound, which is the short vowel sound /ɒ/.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The A and O sounds in "fall," "father," "hot" and "off" are the same sound.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The A and O sounds in "fall," "father," "hot," and "off" are indeed the same sound. In English, these sounds are represented by different letters, but they are actually pronounced in a similar way. The A sound in "fall" and "father" is a long vowel sound, while the O sound in "hot" and "off" is a short vowel sound. However, they both have a similar "ah" sound. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The two A's in "language" have the same sound.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the two A's in the word "language" do not have the same sound. The first A in "language" is pronounced as a short vowel sound, while the second A is pronounced as a long vowel sound. Therefore, they have different sounds.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The two O's in "common" have the same sound.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the two O's in "common" do not have the same sound. The first O has a short sound, as in "hot," while the second O has a long sound, as in "cone."

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    The words "wood" and "would" sound the same.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because "wood" and "would" are homophones, meaning they sound the same but have different spellings and meanings. In English, there are many examples of words that sound alike but are spelled differently, and "wood" and "would" are one such pair.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The U sounds in "just," "during," "busy" and "minute" are the same sound.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The U sounds in "just," "during," "busy," and "minute" are not the same sound. In "just" and "during," the U sound is pronounced as /ʌ/, while in "busy" and "minute," the U sound is pronounced as /uː/. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    All the vowels in "among," "certain," "color" and "does" are the same sound.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because all the vowels in the words "among," "certain," "color," and "does" are pronounced with the same sound. In these words, the vowel sound is represented by the letter "o" in "among" and "color," and by the letter "e" in "certain" and "does." Therefore, all the vowels in these words have the same sound.
