How to Remember the Difference between Lay and Lie
(pLAce) and (recLIne)
This mnemonic should help you remember that lay, which begins with the letters L-A, has a long A sound like its definition: to place. On the other hand, lie, which starts with the letters L-I, has a long I sound like its definition: to recline.

yup, this question is clear, it tests the vocabulary of lay and lie.
I lay my love on you -> it cant be that I lie my love on you.
