I personally prefer to pronounce both the s and the c to avoid this kind of confusion

Okay, so hear me out…

The sound that comes from saying “c” either sounds like an “s” or a “k”. Therefore, you may even say that (sound) c = s or k.

Thus, let’s apply this knowledge to “scent”.

Sc = “s” sound

However, if we substitute “s” sound in for c (based on the equation c = s (sound). Then we end with a new equation:

Ss = “s” (sound).

Therefore, we discover that the “c” is the letter that is silent because, in reality, it does not have its own “c” sound, but is truly another means of expressing the sound “s”.

Thank you.:joy::joy::joy::joy:
