    • A.

      Understand

    • B.

      Translate

    • C.

      Listen

    Correct Answer
    A. Understand
    Explanation
    Dogs can understand language to some extent. While some animal lovers believe that dogs can understand every word, it is more likely that they understand the way we say things rather than the actual words. Dogs can pick up on the intonation and tone of our voice, which is why they may get excited when we say certain words with a certain intonation. However, there are certain types of dogs that can understand separate words and can be trained to understand a variety of different words. This shows that dogs have the ability to give meaning to language.

    C. Many
    Explanation
    Dogs generally understand the way we say things and not the words themselves. They can recognize the intonation in our voice, which is why they get excited when we say certain words with a specific tone. However, there are certain types of dogs that can understand separate words and be trained to recognize a variety of different words. This is demonstrated by a dog in Germany that can identify over 200 different toys when the owner says their names. Therefore, it can be concluded that doggy brains can give meaning to language.

    • B.

      Say

    • C.

      Give

    Correct Answer
    B. Say
    Explanation
    Dogs generally understand the way we say things and not the words themselves. They can recognize the intonation in our voice and get excited based on that, rather than the specific words we say. For example, saying "Walkies!" with an excited tone will make them excited, but it's not the word itself that they recognize, it's the intonation. However, there are some types of dogs that can understand separate words and be trained to recognize a lot of different words. This is demonstrated by a dog in Germany that can identify over 200 different toys when the owner says their names. This shows that dogs can give meaning to language.
