If you answered correctly and understand why the other choices were wrong, congratulations, you're ready to start rhyming.

If you answered incorrectly, or highlighted the answer without taking the quiz, then you should read the previous post (What Is a Rhyme?) before moving on.

If you disagree with the answer, and want to toss around nonsense phrases like “slant rhyme,” “eye rhyme,” and “near rhyme,” then read the previous post twice.
