In this game, you will see a clue like the one above. The answer to each part of the clue is a set of two words, but they’re reversed. If you feel cheerful about something, you’re “upbeat”, but if you blame yourself for something going wrong, you get “beat-up”. For the purposes of the game, it doesn’t matter if the two words are usually written as one, or if they usually have a hyphen. The main thing is that they are two words which can be reversed to form expressions with differing meanings.

When you think you have found the answers, type them into the answer area with a space between them and check. Just type each word once in the order given by the first part of the clue, in this case: up beat.
