    The correct answer is B. Denotation

    Explanation:

    In language, words can have two different types of meanings denotative meaning and connotative meaning. The denotative meaning refers to the meaning that has been agreed "universally" for the speakers of a language and is understood in the same way for all of them, because of this the denotative meaning or the denotation of a word is the meaning found on dictionaries or glossaries or the literal meaning of words. On the other hand, the connotation of a word or connotative meaning refers to the emotional and thought associations people of a language do in regards to some word determined by their personal experience and particular use of language, which means different to the denotative meaning the connotative meaning is not universal. Considering this, it can be concluded the definition of a word is the denotation of it.
