FACE

Possible Answers:

Eyeliner

Glasses

Make-up

Confront

Pimple

Correct answer:

Confront

Explanation:

The verbs "face" and "confront" are synonymous. "Face your fears; confront them courageously." The other words may seem related to the noun "face" (not the verb), but they are not synonyms. A person might have a "pimple" on his or her "face," wear "glasses," or use "make-up" such as "eyeliner." A "face" (noun) is not the same as "glasses" or a "pimple."
