Which One Of The Following Two-syllable Words Contains An Open Syllable And A Closed Syllable?

Question: Which of the following two-syllable words contains an open syllable followed by a closed syllable?

  • comet
  • secret
  • happy
  • cowboy

Answer: Secret.

Let’s break down the word “secret” into its syllables and determine the type of each syllable:

“Secret” can be split into “se-cret.”

  1. “Se-” is an open syllable. In an open syllable, the vowel at the end of the syllable can make its long sound. In this case, the “e” in “se-” sounds like “ee.”
  2. “-cret” is a closed syllable. In a closed syllable, a single vowel is followed by one or more consonants, and it usually makes its short sound. Here, the “e” in “-cret” sounds like “eh,” which is its short sound.

So, the word “secret” indeed has an open syllable followed by a closed syllable.
