User: A thesaurus gives the etymology of a word. True False

Weegy: A thesaurus gives the etymology of a word. This is FALSE. The etymology of a word is its linguistic history; a thesaurus gives synonyms and antonyms of words.

Because the answer was originally posted as a comment, not as an answer. I think I'm right that it can (and should ) be resubmitted in the answer box, but I await other feedback on this.

Janet is right. During 2011, there was no "Add Answer", so all answers were submitted as a comment. These kind of responses can only be seen on Random Archive which is only available to Level 1 and above experts and Moderators.

It's okay to re-submit the answer and add it to the Answer Section, so that it will be confirmed.
