    Opposites

    Hello everyone,

    Would you please correct the following exercise? I write only those sentences down where I'm not sure wether they are right or not.

    Supply the oposites of the words in italics:

    1.) They lost 20 per cent.
    They gain 20 per cent.

    2.) They've certainly send up the cost of living.
    They've certainly bring down the cost of living.

    3.) Prices are on the rise.
    Prices are on the slump.

    4.) Their share of the market slumped to 19 per cent.
    Their share of the market increased to 19 per cent.

    Thanks in advance for your help,
    Dany
