Opposites Attract 1

This Spanish Difficult Review picture quiz is the first of two quizzes where you will need to focus on what is the opposite. What are opposites? Well, if I say red then you say blue. If I say good then you say bad, and if I say new then you say old.

It seems that we are always in a constant battle of opposite minds and opinions. Of course, in the real world there are opposites to just about everything. In fact, there is a saying that states that 'there must be opposition in all things' in order to be able to appreciate the good from the not so good. After all, if you have never experienced sadness, how can appreciate joy?

You know about the opposites in English, now it is time to test your opposites in Spanish. To complete this quick picture quiz you will need to use the given pictures to be able to determine the missing word found within each quiz sentence. The twist here is that you MUST use the opposite Spanish word for what the picture is telling you. For example, if the picture were of a small boat you will need to fill in the blank with the Spanish word for a large boat. Got it? Then remember to be thinking about the opposite!
