Question:

Which of the following is spelled correctly, showing an exception to a spelling rule?

A neither
Explaination


"Neither" is correct because it is an exception to the I before E rule. The rule states, “i before e except after c”. This is an exception because the E comes before the I in this case.
Wierd is incorrect. The correct spelling is weird, so the answer choice is misspelled.
Receive is incorrect because it follows the second part of the I before E rule, so it’s not an exception.
Sliegh is incorrect. The correct spelling is sleigh, so the answer choice is misspelled.
