12-year old Forrie Agincourt stayed with his Auntie Jenn Malheur while his parents drove to Prosper, Connecticut for a second honeymoon. It seemed that whatever Jenn would say, Forrie would twist around to almost the opposite phrasing, and vice versa.
Over the week, they conceived several sets of words that you might think were opposites. Each pair of definitions below involves two words that are spelled the same ... except that the first start with "pro" and the second starts with "con".
Forrie gave the list to his parents when they returned. Without conferring, Prospera was confident of 5 of the 6 problems, conceding only one; Connor consequently probed only 4. Can you connect on all six?

1. division of Canada or France -- win over
2. argue against -- competition
3. geometry tool -- builder
4. a stage play -- property of electrical transmission
5. intellectually deep -- befuddle
6. advance -- legislature
