    Depends. What do you want to say?
    I find most kittens both cute and adorable. However, some cute things are not adorable and vice versa. Have you tried a few dictionaries?

    Re: Cute or Adorable

    "I have a cute kitten" is correct English. I don't know if it's true for you.

    Are we meant to reconstitute the test question from a wrong answer and a right answer?
