  1. I don't like these questions. What is meant by "class?" But I'd opt for A also.

  3. Yes, I can see how you might be confused. A dictionary definition of a word may include a sentence in which the word is correctly used. I don't know what a "class" is in this context.

  4. Another poorly written question.

    "class" probably should really be "classification" (such as part of speech -- noun, verb, adverb, etc.)

  5. In writing, the art of definition is the art of saying what you mean. That’s a point to keep in mind. To express the purpose of an essay—to inform, to illustrate, to persuade, to compare and contrast—you need to use words that will communicate with your reader.
    In the simplest sense, that means making sure your terms are understandable to your likely audience. For example, to be explicit about what you mean, you might write, “The Treaty of Vienna of 1648 ended Europe’s 30-Year War.” Or, when writing about bird watchers, you might write, “Biologists who study birds are called ornithologists; however, hobbyists who love bird watching call themselves birders.”
    I found this you think my answer was correct?
    A simple standard definition generally has three parts:

    1. The term itself
    2. The class, group, or category related to that term
    3. The characteristics that distinguish the term from all the others in its class or category

  6. If "class" means part of speech (noun, verb, etc.), you are correct.
