The correct answer to this question is E lane. In the name Elane, E is the stressed syllable. Compared to unstressed syllables, stressed syllables are louder — the person speaking puts emphasis on the stressed syllable and articulates it more than the unstressed one.
It is best for a person to read the word aloud and see which syllables are emphasized to identify which syllables are stressed or unstressed. They also differ in how the pitch of the syllables. Stressed syllables have a change in the pitch and set the tone because unstressed syllables follow the pitch that the stressed syllables put forth.
