    Well, according to Google, this is the definition of consonance: the combination of notes that are in harmony with each other due to the relationship between their frequencies. So based on this definition, @JakobRyancx20 , what do you think that the answer would be? :)

    Thanks for the reply Xmoses. Earlier throughout the course, they gave me the definition of consonance. They said: Repetition of similar consonant sounds, often in the middle or at the end of the word. I'm pretty sure B and C could both possibly be the answer. OpenStudy didn't underline the letters, so I've attached a picture.

    I see! Although i do believe that it is the relationship between two words rather than three...

    Based on that definition you provided, cool and school both have matching consonance in the MIDDLE of the words.
