      C

    • D.

      D

    Correct Answer
    C. C
    Explanation
    The letter "C" makes the "OH" sound. In English, the letter "C" is often pronounced as /s/ when followed by the vowels "E", "I", or "Y" (e.g., "cent", "city", "cycle"). However, when followed by the vowels "A", "O", or "U", it is pronounced as /k/ (e.g., "cat", "cot", "cup"). In this case, since we are looking for the letter that makes the "OH" sound, which is typically represented by the letter "O", the correct answer is "C".

      D

    Correct Answer
    B. B
    Explanation
    The letter "B" makes the P sound. In English, the letter "B" represents the voiced bilabial plosive sound, which is similar to the unvoiced bilabial plosive sound represented by the letter "P". The only difference is that the voiced sound is produced with the vocal cords vibrating, while the unvoiced sound is produced without vocal cord vibration. Therefore, "B" is the correct answer because it represents the letter that makes the P sound.

    • C.

      It makes the EE sound.

    • D.

      It is silent.

    Correct Answer
    C. It makes the EE sound.
    Explanation
    The Ayin does not make the "EE" sound. In Hebrew, the Ayin is a consonant that represents a guttural sound, similar to the "ch" sound in German "Bach" or the "kh" sound in Russian "khleb". It is not similar to the Alef, it does depend on a vowel for a sound, and it is not silent.

    Explanation
    The letter C makes a guttural sound. In phonetics, a guttural sound is produced in the back of the throat, and the letter C can represent this sound in certain languages or contexts. This sound is often described as deep, harsh, or throaty.
