I put down "that represents a woman" and was marked correctly and given "that shows a woman" as another possible answer. I was wondering what's the proper context for this sentence? My interpretation is more along the lines of symbolism "this flower represents a woman" where as the alternative doesn't quite make sense. can someone explain how it's suppose to be used?
They are pronounced the same, but one is a pronoun, and the other is a possessive adjective. Based on context you can deduce which one is used. It's sort of like "their", and "there" in English. For a given sentence you can deduce which one I'm using based on the rest of the sentence.
