The answer to this question is (C.) Fonts are different kinds of typeface used in printing or, today, digital publishing. An example of this would be the Times New Roman or Courier New fonts that can be used in modern word processing programs. An ideograph or ideogram is a symbol that represents an idea, like a figure of a child on a sign indicating a school crossing, or a hieroglyphic character representing a certain idea. A gambit can have many different meanings, but implies a risky decision that involves a sacrifice for some greater gain. An alphabet, finally, is a series of symbols that represent sounds.
