    If it was to be cent it sound be like a penny so sent... actually the rules of Italian spelling ce is che. the h is silent schent.... It seems too Germanic.

    It's the "c" obviously or else they'd spell 'skunk' with a 'c' like--- "scunk."

    As SENT and CENT are both pronounced the same, asking whether it's the S or the C that is silent in SCENT is a bit like opening a can of worms.

    Ahh,,de’cent question,RR..

    There’s been a lot of descension over the centuries about it.

    Ever since way back when they thot that if the gods & aliens

    never fart;

    Earth must be the SCENTER OF THE UNIVERSE..πŸ€”
