### Do the words flammable and inflammable have the same or opposite meaning?

• A.

Same

• B.

Opposite

A. Same
Explanation
The words "flammable" and "inflammable" have the same meaning. Both words are used to describe materials or substances that are easily set on fire or capable of burning. The prefix "in-" in "inflammable" does not make it mean the opposite of "flammable", as it may seem. This is because "in-" in this context is derived from the Latin prefix "in-" which means "into" or "toward". Therefore, both words are synonyms and can be used interchangeably to convey the same idea.
