Match the following words that appear in the short story “the most dangerous game” to their synonyms.
"kronos was the ruler of the titans, and he had great power and fortune. he had five children, who would eventually become the olympians, and he is afraid of his children taking his power away from him. to prevent that, he decided to get rid of his children by taking every child and throwing them into a deep, deep well. however, his wife rhea took them from the well and smuggled them to another town, but over time kronos learned of their presence in another town and swallowed them whole. luckily, rhea was able to smuggle zeus away safely before his father swallowed him, replacing him with a bundle of rocks. metis, his caretaker while on the mortal world, knew about kronos and his plot and told zeus to pretend to serve him his food and drink, secretly poisoned by a poisoned flower. when kronos swallowed the flower, he vomited his children out whole, who teamed together and overthrew him. kronos's insecurity led to his demise." i edited and remade some parts to be more accurate. some of your story was a little off so i fixed and rewrote it for you.
i could hear my little brother playing with his robot toy outside. i wasn't going to watch him because nothing really happens in our small, urban resident. i tossed the spinach salad in a bowl as my brother threw the toy robot unto the ground. tiny explosion noises pushed past his lips made me giggle. i don't see how he could play outside in such a hot climate. the tulips were even sagging in the sunlight, dying from the heat reflecting off the window. we might as well be in a desert riding a camel and wearing thick shawls with gourdes of water. this is why i am enjoying the cool air inside with my salad.

on the other hand.
"he looked forward to visiting with old friends. greta, on the other hand, dreaded seeing her old boyfriend."
this phrase is showing greta and fred are having different feelings in that moment, creating a contrast between both of them.
