    • A.

      Understand

    • B.

      Translate

    • C.

      Listen

    Correct Answer
    A. Understand
    Explanation
    Dogs generally understand the way we say things and not the words themselves. They can recognize the intonation and tone of our voice, which is why they get excited when we say certain words like "Walkies!" It is not the specific word that they recognize, but rather the way we say it. However, there are certain types of dogs that can understand separate words and can be trained to understand a variety of different words. This is demonstrated by a dog in Germany that can identify over 200 different toys when its owner says the name of the toy. This shows that dogs are capable of giving meaning to language.
