    Correct Answer
    B. Dictionary
    Explanation

A dictionary is specifically designed to provide definitions and explanations of words, making it the go-to resource for understanding the meaning of a word. While an almanac and an encyclopedia may provide additional information about a word, they are not primarily focused on providing definitions. Therefore, a dictionary is the best resource for finding the definition of a word.

    The correct answer is "the author." The author is the person who writes the book, creating the storyline, characters, and overall content. They are responsible for the creative and literary aspects of the book.

    The illustrator is the person who draws the pictures in a book. They are responsible for creating the visual elements that accompany the text and help bring the story to life. While the author writes the words, the illustrator adds the visual storytelling through their drawings or illustrations. The publisher is not directly involved in the creation of the pictures, but rather focuses on printing and distributing the book.

      Table of Contents

    Correct Answer
    C. Table of Contents
    Explanation
    The table of contents is a section in a book that lists the different chapters or sections in the book, along with their page numbers. It provides an organized outline or roadmap of the book's content, allowing readers to easily navigate and locate specific information within the book. The glossary, on the other hand, is a list of terms and their definitions, while the index is an alphabetical list of topics or keywords with page numbers indicating where they can be found in the book. Therefore, the table of contents is the part of the book that provides information about the different chapters or sections.

Unlike fiction books, which are based on imagination and storytelling, nonfiction books present information that is true and can be verified. Examples of nonfiction books include biographies, history books, scientific texts, and reference books.

It provides a detailed and comprehensive overview of the person's life, including their personal experiences, achievements, and significant events. Unlike an almanac, which is a reference book containing statistical and general information, and a dictionary, which is a reference book containing definitions and explanations of words, a biography focuses specifically on the life story of an individual.
