nadha:
Using the brain of others does not develope yours. You would get much more useful of your thinkning developement if you had posted what you thought the definitions were, and used them in a sentence for us to check.
How does one learn a language? By using it, not others. That in fact is the way we learn anything, by doing repetition spaced over time. Our most excellent language teachers can do wonders with your learning, however, you need to do your own thinking and work.

Thanks.

BobPursley is right: You won't learn well if you get others to do your work for you.

Whenever you have an assignment like this one, you should turn to a good dictionary, either in print or online or both. Here are some excellent online dictionaries:

This is useful when you need synonyms (words with the same meaning), antonyms (words with opposite meanings), homonyms (words with the same sound but different meanings), style guides, rhymes, etc.
