Which one of the following sentence represents an example of an effective
definition?
A. An animal is a living creature that is not human.
B.An animal is different from a vegetable or mineral.
C.All animals are the same in some ways,
yet different in others.
D.An animal is a living creature that moves and ingests food through a mouth.
Answer :C or D
Both sounds o.k , but which one is correct

  • ENGLISH -

    Please reread them. One of them doesn't define anything, just says there are similarities and differences.

    ??

  • ENGLISH -

    That's why it is a bit confusing ,but this is exactly how it is the text book.

  • ENGLISH -

    Sentence C is simply saying there are similarities and differences among animals. That's not a definition.

    Sentence D has details about an animal.

    Sentence A tells what an animal isn't -- not a good definition.

    Sentence B also tells what animals are not.

  • ENGLISH -

    I guess D is more likely as it little bit describes an animal.

  • ENGLISH -

    It sort of depends on how you want to define "effective," since the examples that would seem to work ("A" and "D") aren't actually true.
