Solution
Verified by Toppr

The verb, 'permit' means 'allow'. The verb, 'forbid' means 'refuse to allow'. As the two words have opposite meanings, they are antonyms and option B is the correct answer.

The verb, 'give' means 'to hand over/ freely transfer the possession of (something) to (someone)'. The verb, 'allow' means the same as 'permit'. The verb, 'preserve' means maintain (something) in its original or existing state'.

As the above three words do not mean the opposite of the word, 'permit', options A, C and D are incorrect.
