Antonyms are wonderfully simple. They are words with opposite meanings.
Hot and cold, warm and cool, night and day; these are all examples. Most days they are pretty easy, the opposite of up is down after all. Some might be a little confusing if there is more than one meaning for a word, like right and wrong or right and left. That’s not so bad. But other times the become much more subjective. I remember my teachers saying cows and horses or cats and dogs were opposites. I suppose you could say that but it still seems a bit funny to me. What is the opposite of an ostrich after all?
What is the opposite of a friend? Is it an enemy or a stranger? I’ll leave that for you to decide.
