Question
1)What is aroma? i)taste ii)taste and smell

Answer
Hi Lucy,

Aroma usually refers to a pleasant smell.  It is often associated with fine wines, but it can also be used for the scent of other drinks (like hot chocolate), or foods (like freshly baked bread), or even flowers and herbs.  I have heard it used to describe undesirable, but pervasive smells, also. For instance: "Mike's sofa had an unpleasant aroma of dog".  Although scent and taste are closely associated, aroma is all about smell.
Thanking you,
Susan
