    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The letter "B" is a consonant.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The letter "B" is a consonant because it is a speech sound that is produced by completely or partially blocking the airflow coming from the vocal cords. In the case of the letter "B," it is produced by closing the lips and then releasing them to create a sound. Consonants are contrasted with vowels, which are produced without any obstruction of the airflow.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    The letter "T" is a consonant.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The letter "T" is considered a consonant because it represents a speech sound that is produced by obstructing airflow in some way. In the case of the letter "T," it is produced by briefly stopping the airflow with the tongue against the roof of the mouth. Consonants are contrasted with vowels, which are produced with an open vocal tract and no obstruction of airflow. Therefore, "T" meets the criteria for being classified as a consonant.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    The letter "E" is a consonant.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The letter "E" is not a consonant, it is a vowel. Consonants are speech sounds produced by obstructing or partially obstructing the airflow, while vowels are speech sounds produced without any obstruction. The letter "E" represents the vowel sound in words like "bed," "pen," and "red." Therefore, the statement that the letter "E" is a consonant is false.

    A. Lid
    Explanation
    The word "lid" has the same vowel sound as "pig" because both words have the short "i" sound. The vowel sound in "pine" is different, as it has the long "i" sound.

    Rhyming words are words that:

    • A.

      Words that mean about the same thing

      Sound exactly alike but are spelled differently

    • C.

      Words that mean the opposite

    • D.

      End in the same sound

    Correct Answer
    D. End in the same sound
    Explanation
    Rhyming words are words that end in the same sound. This means that the final sounds of the words are identical or very similar. For example, "cat" and "hat" rhyme because they both end in the "at" sound. Rhyming words can have different spellings, but they will have the same sound at the end. Therefore, the correct answer is "End in the same sound."

    D. Sound alike but have different meanings and different spellings.
    Explanation
    Homophones are words that sound alike but have different meanings and different spellings. This means that they may have similar pronunciation but their definitions and spellings are distinct from each other. For example, "pail" and "pale" are homophones because they sound the same but have different meanings and spellings.

    The statement is true because "Tour" and "Tore" are pronounced the same way, even though they have different spellings and meanings. Homophones are words that sound alike but have different meanings, and in this case, "Tour" and "Tore" fit that definition. Therefore, the correct answer is true.
