    Correct Answer
    B. Hyponymy
    Explanation
    Hyponymy is the relationship between a general term and a more specific term. In this case, "dog" is a specific term that falls under the general category of "animal." Therefore, "dog" is a hyponym of "animal." Antonymy refers to words with opposite meanings, and synonymy refers to words with similar meanings.

      Antonymy

    Correct Answer
    C. Antonymy
    Explanation
    Antonymy refers to a relationship between words that have opposite meanings. In this case, "new" and "old" are antonyms because they represent contrasting concepts of time or age. While "new" suggests something recent, fresh, or modern, "old" conveys the idea of something aged, ancient, or outdated. Therefore, antonymy is the correct answer as it accurately describes the relationship between the given words.
