'Grave' can also mean serious, earnest; as in, "The undertaker had a grave expression."
2. Change 'alive' to a word meaning 'similar'. What is the new word?

Answer: alike

Alike means, usually, of similar appearance or of the same kind; not necessarily identical.
3. Change 'house' to a word meaning 'small rodent'. What is the new word?

Answer: mouse

Mouse may mean a small rodent, or a computer input device.
4. Change 'petrol' to a word meaning 'a kind of seabird'. What is the new word?

Answer: petrel

Petrels vary in size and shape. They got their name as a derivation of St. Peter, because their low-hovering habits make them look like they're also walking on water!
5. Change 'jockey' to a word meaning 'a field sport played with a hard ball and curved sticks'. What is the new word?

Answer: hockey

Field hockey is a relatively minor sport but with a determined following, especially among British Commonwealth countries.
6. Change 'recent' to a word meaning 'to deny what was believed or to take back what was said'. What is the new word?

Answer: recant

As in: The Spanish Inquisition would like you to recant your statement that you don't believe the Pope is infallible.
7. Change 'shrimp' to a word meaning 'to save or cut costs'. What is the new word?

Answer: scrimp

Commonly used as a phrase, 'to scrimp and save', it means to use or spend as little as possible.
8. Change 'duelling' to a word meaning 'suppressing or putting down'. What is the new word?

Answer: quelling

It is derived from an Old English word which meant 'to kill', and often involves the use of force. It can also refer to the internal suppression of emotions.
9. Change 'hornet' to a word meaning 'musical instrument'. What is the new word?

Answer: cornet

A brass instrument, similar to a trumpet but somewhat smaller.
It might also refer to a wafer biscuit cone, usually used for ice-cream - but that would have made it too easy!
10. And now for dessert! Change 'tool' to a word meaning 'pudding'. What is the new word?

Answer: fool

A creamy fruit dessert, I recommend using a combination of cream cheese, cream, condensed milk (not too much, or it becomes too sweet), and a pureed fruit of your choice. Strawberries, apricots or black cherries work very well. Enjoy!
