It's rather difficult to distinguish the two pictures. They are almost alike/like.
MinhuocWhich word would be used here? "like" or "alike"? How can I differentiate?alike
Two pictures that look alike look very similar. There isn't much difference between them.
I was taught that "alike" is a predicate adjective. Contrarily, "like" can only be used before a noun as an adj..
Forums are places one can meet people with like interests.
This is a like picture.
(meaning similar to another one).
Anonymous:"like" is completely replaceable by "similar to".so we can get the right word using the "similar to" test.
Anonymous:It would be "alike". You use "alike" at the end of a sentence or phrase, after the 2 words you are comparing. Use "like" between the words:
Alice looks like Alan. Alice and Alan look alike.
Anonymous:you should use "alike" for tha fact that like is always followed by a noun and "alike " comes to the end of the sentence
