    Default with "zip"

    I wonder what the following sentence mean:

    Write synonyms with "zip" for each word.

    Sample 1. Small
    dainty
    -------


    What does "with zip" mean?

    Thanks.

    Dear tfmp:

    I'm not entirely certain what you are expected to do, but the word 'zip' can mean energy, vitality, verve, etc.
    I'm not too sure what a 'zippy' synonym for 'small' is. Is 'dainty' supposed to be an acceptable answer? I don't know that it's got more 'zip', but it could be considered a more interesting word than 'small'.

    I hope this is of some help,

    Petra
