Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Words ambiguity are two types: hyponymy and polysemy? 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that there are indeed two types of word ambiguity: hyponymy and polysemy. Hyponymy refers to the relationship between words where one word is a specific type or subclass of another word. Polysemy, on the other hand, refers to words that have multiple meanings or interpretations. Therefore, the statement "Words ambiguity are two types: hyponymy and polysemy" is true.

    A word or sentence is ambiguous if it has only one sense? 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because a word or sentence is considered ambiguous when it has more than one sense or meaning. Ambiguity occurs when a word or sentence can be interpreted in multiple ways, leading to confusion or misunderstanding. Therefore, the correct answer is false, as ambiguity is characterized by having multiple senses or meanings.

    Sea/ See is a relation of homophony? 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Sea and see are examples of homophones, which are words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings. In this case, "sea" refers to a large body of saltwater, while "see" means to perceive with the eyes or to understand. Since they sound identical but have different meanings, sea and see can be considered a relation of homophony. Therefore, the correct answer is true.

  • 4. 

    [                                  ] two predicates are gradable antonyms if they are at the opposite ends of a continuous scale. 

    Correct Answer
    Gradable antonyms .
    Explanation
    Two predicates are gradable antonyms if they are at the opposite ends of a continuous scale. This means that they represent opposite extremes on a spectrum or continuum. For example, "hot" and "cold" are gradable antonyms because they represent opposite ends of the temperature scale. Similarly, "big" and "small" are gradable antonyms because they represent opposite ends of the size scale. Gradable antonyms allow for degrees of comparison and can be modified by adverbs like "very" or "somewhat".

    Binary antonymy.
    Explanation
    The given answer, "Binary antonymy," refers to a type of antonymy where two predicates are used in pairs to represent opposite or contrasting concepts. These pairs of predicates cover all the relevant possibilities within a given context. In this case, the blank space in the question suggests that there are two predicates that form a binary antonym pair, and together they encompass all the relevant possibilities.

    The type of antonyms between learner / teacher is [.                                          ]. 

    Correct Answer
    Converse Antonyms
    Explanation
    Converse antonyms are pairs of words that have opposite meanings and also reverse roles in a sentence. In the case of "learner" and "teacher," they are converse antonyms because a learner is someone who is acquiring knowledge or skills from a teacher, while a teacher is someone who imparts knowledge or skills to a learner. They have opposite roles and their meanings are complementary in the context of education.

    The relation between Sara loving junk food and Sara hating junk food is contradictory because the two statements directly oppose each other. It is not possible for Sara to both love and hate junk food at the same time.

    The given correct answer for this question is "Converse Antonymy". This means that the relationship between Father and Son is an example of converse antonymy. Converse antonymy refers to a relationship where one word or concept is the opposite of another, and the two words or concepts are related to each other in terms of their opposite meanings. In this case, Father and Son are opposite in terms of their roles and positions in a family, but they are still related to each other as family members.

In this case, "Easy" and "Difficult" are gradable antonyms because they represent opposite ends of a scale of difficulty. They can be compared and ranked based on the level of ease or difficulty they represent. Therefore, the correct answer is True.

Therefore, the correct answer is true.
