public and private are diametrically opposite concepts.

What's the opposite of military? I dunno...individual with a gun? Civilian?

Stupid question.

The answer is "fire the worthless teacher who came up with the idea to make students find similarities between opposite adjectives and opposite nouns."

Our school system is doomed if this is the best they can do.

Public is the opposite of private. I disagree that the opposite of military is civilian. The correct answer is hippy.
