sorry i dont know exactly the answer of first question

2 is bribery

because compensation:

money paid to someone because they have suffered injury or loss, or because something they own has been damaged

3 is snatch

clutch' meaning is to hold sth firmly

but snatch is to take something away from someone with a quick, often violent, movement [= grab]:

4 is identity

someone's identity is their name or who they are

but identification is not used for this sentence

5 statement
2. I think when 2 people sign a contract, there is usually a term like this: if one break the contract, he/she will have to give the other an amount of money, for compensation.

But when one do something illegal or wrong with the third person and don't want to let his/her parner know, he/she will give the third one some money to keep he/she silent. It's bribery.

So in this case, I think we should use "compensation".

4. I know the compound word "identity card". But when "identity" stands alone, I think that it changes meaning. Could you please tell me which case "identification" is used?

Anyway, thank you for your reply and hope you don't mind when I ask again.

You haven't told us your answers.
@clive: Thank you Emotion: smile)

@mr wordy: According to selo and clive's answers, all my answers are wrong Emotion: sad(

These questions are from an exercise about synonyms and antonyms of mine.

When I did it at home, I used LacViet English Dictionary. But when I typed "from head to toe", there wasn't. There were " from top to bottom", "from top to toe" and "from head to foot".

Maybe I must find another dictionary that's more reliable, right?

Do you agree with selo and clive's answers to 5 questions?
