Question:

what is the difference between a table and a chair?

so its a really dumb question.. but i have this assignment for school. my teacher gave us the example of a desk (like one with the chair and table part connected). he said we have to decide whether the exhibit A (desk) is a table or a chair. we cant be in between, and we cant say its a desk. its either a chair or table. and we need to come up with a thesis and 3 supports for whichever side we choose...its actually really hard. help anyone??

Answer:

If you look up the definition of table it can mean any flat surface really, just because you might use something as a chair, you may still define the construction as a table. eg: - an article of furniture consisting of a flat, slablike top supported on one or more legs or other supports. - a flat or plane surface; a level area. - a flat and relatively thin piece of wood, stone, metal, or other hard substance, esp. one artificially shaped for a particular purpose. A combination chair/table desk could also be described as a multi-level table, seating yourself on the lower level.

the difference between a table and a chair: You sit AT a table and ON a chair. I know this is not the answer you were looking for but its a start.

Well 1st I'd call it a desk,,,, with a chair attachment.... that is it's intended purpose to provide a smooth clean area for you to build do a puzzle assignments etc... anyway the way it is built proves it is to be a stationary item meaning it doesn't normally move, also it have a convienant shelf under the chair attachment

Different. Real linen is a fabric made from flax fibers. Sometimes people call tableclothes linens, though. Satin is a kind of weave...a way of processing the fibers to make the cloth shiny and smooth and thin. Can be done with many different cloths, but is usually done with silk or cotton.
