QUICK CONCEPT REVIEW

Antonyms means opposites. Opposites mean one or two things which are completely different. For example

 

When we use opposites, the whole meaning of the sentence changes. Let's say for example. Ram is going. When we replace going with its opposite, that is coming, the sentence becomes Ram is coming. The whole meaning changes as going and coming are completely different actions. Or take example Seeta is sad. Let's replace sad with its opposite word happy and write Seeta is happy.
