    Correct Answer
    C. ɒ
    Explanation
    The given correct answer, ɒ, is a vowel sound in the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) that represents the "short o" sound, as in the word "lot" or "hot." It is a low back vowel sound, meaning that the tongue is positioned low and towards the back of the mouth when producing this sound.

    • E.

      Half-long [æ]

    Correct Answer

    Explanation
    In the word "Pete," the sound represented by the letter 'e' is typically a short [e]. It is not a long [I], short [i], half-long [i], or half-long [æ]. The pronunciation of this word can vary slightly depending on regional accents, but the most common pronunciation is with a short [e] sound.
