Hi we dont have answer sheet for this question.
Empty is to (full, solid, bare)
as partial is to (incomplete, independent, unusual)
my DD put bare and incomplete. Just need clarification that this is right please!
Empty and solid have only a very tangential connection, so I think we can discount that as an answer.
Empty and bare can have similar meanings, but are not always the same thing. In fact I'd say that only in reference to an empty cupboard would someone know immediately what you meant if you said it was 'bare', it's Old Mother Hubbrd's doing. 'Bare' normally refers to a lack of covering - bare walls, bare floor, bare behind - rather than empty.
Empty and full are clear opposites
Partial (a part) and incomplete are synonyms
Partial (biased) and independent are opposites
Partial and unusual have not much of a link at all.
Therefore, although you could make a case for bare/incomplete being the answer, it doesn't work quite as well as full/independent, which are both clear opposites of the seed words.
