A: @Maria2000:
In everyday conversation, these two words are pronounced nearly the same way and you have to depend on the context to know whether the plural, gentlemen, or the singular, gentleman, is being used. However, since they are spelled differently in writing, you can tell them apart without the context. I think I just phrased that awkwardly, sorry.
