    Correct Answer
    D. All of these
    Explanation
    The sound /tʃ/ is voiceless, meaning that it is produced without the vocal cords vibrating. It is also alveo-palatal, which means that it is articulated with the blade of the tongue touching the alveolar ridge and the body of the tongue raised towards the hard palate. Lastly, it is an affricate consonant, which means that it begins with a stop closure and is released with a fricative sound. Therefore, the correct answer is all of these.
