Whole vs hole. Do you know the difference?

So, this one is an easy one! (I promise!)

They are pronounced the same way but are very different.

This of whole as being complete, or the entire thing. Look at the examples below.

The cake was whole, but someone took a slice out.

This chocolate bar is whole.

This is the whole pizza. Nobody has taken a slice. Yum! It looks good! 🙂
