It's an 'opposites' question and the choices are:

(rudely chivalry worry)
(cowardly scarily kindl) NB. the last word is spelt correctly ie. 'kindly' on the multi-choice answer sheet.

The marking scheme gives the answer as chivalry/cowardly. I don't think these can be opposites can they?

Chivalry is a noun (His chivalry was legendary), and cowardly is an adverb (He acted in a cowardly fashion) or adjective (They were cowardly), so no, they can't be opposites. I'd go with rudely/kindly - She spoke to me rudely, she spoke to me kindly.

Wouldn't have thought so as (ignoring meaning) one is a noun and the other an adjective.

edit. ... sorry and an adverb.

I'd have to go with that answer as well.

chivalry and cowardice 'possibly' (although not a good match)

My thoughts exactly- I've been drilling it into DS that can't have a noun and an adjective as opposites! (He went for kindly/rudely). Thanks Y, KS10 and Yoyo123 for replying so quickly!
