A. separate
B. seperate

 

Answer: A

Separate is a commonly misspelled word. It can be used as an adjective or verb. As an adjective, it means to set apart, distinct, or not related. As a verb, it means to set apart, to distinguish, or to divide.

A useful mnemonic for remembering the right of separate is “there’s a rat in separate“, referring to the a that appears as the second vowel in sep-a rat-e.
