Question 1 Report
Choose the option that has the same consonant sound as the one represented by the letter(s) underlined.
The option that has the same consonant sound as the one represented by the underlined letters in "mother" is "breathe." In the word "mother," the underlined letters are "th," which represents a voiced dental fricative sound. The word "breathe" also contains the same consonant sound represented by "th" in "mother." In "breathe," the "th" is also voiced and dental, producing a similar sound. The other options, "think," "teacher," and "watched," do not contain the same consonant sound as "mother." "Think" contains an unvoiced dental fricative "th" sound, while "teacher" and "watched" contain a "ch" sound, which is a voiceless palato-alveolar affricate sound. Understanding consonant sounds is essential for clear communication and correct pronunciation in English. It's important to learn and practice the correct pronunciation of each sound to be easily understood by native speakers.
