Question:

Which of the following uses the I before E rule correctly?

A believe
explanation


"Believe" is correct because it follows the I before E rule.
"Recieve" is incorrect because it violates the second part of the I-E rule, i.e. the part which states, “…except after c”. This word is misspelled and should be receive.
"Caffeine" is incorrect because it violates the I before E part of the rule.
"Riegn" is incorrect because it violates the third part of the I-E rule, i.e. the part that states, “…or when sounding ‘long A’, as in neighbor or weigh”.
