Therefore, just as "left" is the opposite of "right," "finish" is the opposite of "commence."

    The relationship between "knotted" and "gnarled" is that they are both words that describe a physical characteristic. In the same way, "lecture" and "speech" are both words that describe a form of communication. The other options do not have a similar relationship, as "commence," "foolish," and "tremor" do not relate to "knotted" in the same way that "gnarled" does.

    The relationship between "skillful" and "clever" is that they are synonyms, meaning they have a similar or related meaning. Similarly, the relationship between "threatening" and "ominous" is that they are also synonyms, as both words convey a sense of danger or foreboding. Therefore, the correct answer is "threatening : ominous" because they share a similar relationship as the given pair "skillful : clever".
