I don’t really know what exactly seems obvious to you, so, please, don’t get angry at me for too much detailed description))


Firstly, “antonym” of a certain word is the word which has the opposite meaning to one which is stated. Then “urban” means something regarding city lifestyle. “Dwell” – to live, to reside; so “dweller” is one who lives, resident. Summing up, urban dweller – a man who lives in a city.


Technically, either of first two answers can be correct. But as an opposite meaning of city lifestyle peacefull quiet countyside residents are mostly meant. Therefore, I’d rather choose the second one.

You know, everyone makes mistakes and surely I’m not an exception. Nevertheless, you guys are likely not to realize what antonym means correctly. As Wiki claims: “An antonym is one of a pair of words with opposite meanings”, so that one should chose the answer with the opposite meaning!


Therefore, I bet, 3rd option can’t be correct. Put me right with the clear explanation of what the thing is, in case you’re sure in another statement
