English-CHECK PLEASE

posted by Catherine

Ok, I figured this out (I think) but can you please check?
Don't worry. I can carry the tent all by myself because it is so light. I do not even need a lantern it is so light outside.
In these sentences, the word "light" is used as a:
A:homophone
B:homonyme
C:synonym
D:simile
I got A. Can you check?

  1. Ms. Sue

    Some people use homonym and homophone as the same. Strictly speaking though, light is a homonym, not a homophone.
