    I pronounce the two words in c. the same.

    But there is one pair that don't sound exactly alike to me.

    Same them all out loud. If necessary, look up the words in a dictionary to see their pronunciation.

    You have a question mark. Did you pronounce all of these words out loud? Did you look up some of them in a dictionary?

    You might also consider other rhyming words. Do they all sound the same?

    good >> wood, would, could
    food >> mood, rude, brood
