Solution 11 pairs from 20 words | Comment 1 of 7
average     mean        intend
deny        scotch      whiskey
deer        hind        rear
enrapture   entrance    portico
exhort      press       iron
garbage     trash       scupper
gift        present     introduce
interval    period      snap
introduce   raise       rear      ***
irate       cross       saltire
mend        fix         quandary

The *** marks the one that was probably not intended.  To raise a question is to introduce that question, but present is probably the better synonym. Rear is equally good as a synonym for hind as for raise.
