    Welcome to the forum, kash4u.

    We help with problems if we can, but we don't re-invent the wheel. For the meanings of words/expressions, try a dictionary: Definition of ring-true | Collins English Dictionary

    If you don't understand the dictionary definition, then we are happy to try to explain.

    Yes, welcome, kash4u.

    One other point: as the question is about Rings true, that would have been a good title for your thread.

    Re: vocabulary

    From: Definition of ring-true | Collins English Dictionary , with my comments in red

    Definitions
    to give the impression of being true
    Usage examples
    The denial was much too emphatic to ring true [...] It did not sound to me as if his denial were true/genuine/honest.
    "Clonaid have no track record but claim to have cloned hundreds of embryos - it just doesn't ring true ," says Griffin. It did not sound to me as if his claim were true/genuine/honest.
    But something about those photographs of British troops abusing an Iraqi prisoner didn't ring true. There was something about the photographs that suggested to me that they were not genuine.
