Q

In which sentence is a homophone used correctly?

A. How many ours do we have to wait?

B. Karen's new dog had flees.

C. If you ask me, there's no hobby like fishing.

D. The old miner was lost in the dessert.

A

Answer: C. If you ask me, there’s no hobby like fishing.

“If you ask me, there’s no hobby like fishing” uses the homophone “hobby” correctly. The homophone for “hobby” is “hubby” which is an informal form of “husband.” All other options use the homophones wrongly. In option A, the determiner “ours” was used instead of the noun “hours.” In option B, the verb “flees” was used instead of the noun “fleas.” In option D, “dessert” was used instead of “desert.”
