This is a variation of Three Words.

In each of the following groups of three words, determine two of the three that can be paired to form an anagram of another word, which is a synonym of the word remaining.

(For example, considering the three words: NET, LEG and MEEK, we observe that combining the two words LEG and NET and, rearranging the letters, the word GENTLE can be obtained, which is a synonym of the remaining word MEEK.)
