English synonyms questions for competitive exams

English synonyms Questions and answers: Synonym is nothing but the similar meaning of a particular word or its semantic relation. So it is a word phrase that means the same as another word or a phrase in the same language. Antonyms are the negative connotation of a particular word. An Antonym is a word or phrase that is opposite in meaning to a particular word or a phrase in the meaning.

Synonyms are different words with almost identical or similar meanings. Words that are synonyms are said to be synonymous, and the state of being a synonym is called synonymy. Synonyms can be any part of speech (Eg. nouns,verbs, adjectives, adverbs or prepositions), as long as both members of the pair are the same part of the speech.
