Fis forFold

You fold something when you bend it over itself neatly. The man in the picture is folding clothes. Folded clothes are neater and take up much less room in the cupboard than unfolded clothes. They will be less wrinkly when you take them out, too.

Gis forGold

Scientific name: Au
Gold is a heavy, soft, yellow metal that is easy to work with. It is the softest metal, and is very dense, much denser than lead. Gold is very stable and is used to coat other more reactive metals to protect them, but its primary use is in jewelery. Pure gold is too soft to make jewelery out of, and is usually mixed with silver, copper and other metals.

His forHold

You hold something when it is securely in your hands. You might also hold something by supporting it, for example "that post is holding the roof up".

Mis forMarigold

Scientific name: genus: tagetes
Marigolds are bright orange or yellow flowers, related to the common daisy. They are very hardy plants that can be planted all year around in a sunny or partly shaded area, and take about 6 weeks to flower. Pinch out the first flower as it appears so the marigold will make more flowers.

Mis forMold

A mold is a hollow form. When you fill up a mold with something like molten metal or plaster, let it set and then remove the mold, you have a solid shape that matches the shape of the inside of the mold. Mold is also an alternative spelling for mould. The mold in the picture is for a small bridal statue of a bride and groom.
