Identify a false cognate. Le crayon

1 Answer

Answer:

The answer is A. le crayon. A false cognate is a term for where something that has similar spelling or sounds in one language (in this case, English), has a different meaning in another (French).  

So crayon, in English means a crayon, a wax coloring stick. Whereas in French, le crayon means "the pencil." All the other options mean what they look like in both languages. :\
