    Explanation
    The words "bait" and "gate" have a long A sound. In "bait," the AI sound is pronounced as a long A. In "gate," the A is also pronounced as a long A. However, the words "sand" and "tan" do not have a long A sound. In "sand," the A is pronounced as a short A, and in "tan," the A is pronounced as a short A as well. Therefore, the correct words that have a long A sound are "bait" and "gate."

The other words, "mum" and "sum," do not have the long "u" sound. "Mum" has a short "u" sound, pronounced like "uh," and "sum" has a short "u" sound, pronounced like "uh" as well.

    The given words "note" and "float" both have the long "o" sound, which is pronounced as /oʊ/. The other two words "dog" and "mom" do not have the long "o" sound. Therefore, the correct answer is "note, float" as they are the only words that contain the specified sound.

      True

    • B.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that short vowel sounds are pronounced as the actual sound of the letter, while long vowel sounds are pronounced as the name of the letter. For example, the short vowel sound of "a" is pronounced as "æ" in words like "cat," while the long vowel sound of "a" is pronounced as "ay" in words like "cake." Therefore, the statement that short vowel sounds say the letters sound and long vowel sounds say the letters name is true.
