Musical instruments playing the same note can be distinguished from one another owing to the differences in their

A. quality.

B. pitch.

C. intensity

D. loudness

QUICK ANSWER…

A

EXPLANATION…

The quality (also known as timbre) of a note is the distinguishing characteristics that makes the ear identify different instruments even if they have the same pitch and loudness.

Please note the difference between these four, different instruments can have the same pitch (or frequency), the same loudness (or volume), and the same intensity, but never the same quality. Therefore, what makes your ear identify the difference between a note from a guitar and a note from a drum is simply the quality.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

  1. Option A is correct. the quality of a note will help in identifying the instrument responsible for it.
  2. Option B is incorrect. different instruments can have the same frequencies or pitch.
  3. C is incorrect. different instruments can have same intensity.
  4. D is not the correct answer. Different instruments can have the same loudness.
