How can I make 2 sentences using both meanings of the word trap. I already know how to use it like in trapping an animal. But I can't think of a way to use it meaning something else.

    Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. No doubt you will be having a lot of vocabulary words. If you have a good dictionary at home, when you look up the word "trap" you will find it can be a noun, verb or even a transitive verb. There will also be sample sentences in a good dictionary of how to use the word, depending upon if it is a verb (as in your first sentence) or a noun (as in your second sentence.) For difficult words you will also find synonyms (words meaning the same thing) and/or antonyms (words being the opposite.) When you recognize a synonym or an antonym, you can make up a sentence with the word you already know and then substitute the new, difficult one!
