comment Is there such a word as “lightweightness”?
To me, simplicity has a more positive feel compared to simple (probably because simple can be used as an insult to mean someone is stupid). If you want to use a form of lightweight you should just rearrange the sentence as in Shyam's first example.

comment Why “afraid of” and not “brave of”?
Another option is to use the verb instead: brave the dark. This seems close to the teacher's intended meaning.

comment When 'business' means a 'company', how do I use the word?
I didn't down vote, but all the cases you mark as incorrect sound fine to me.

comment What do you call a man who knows well how to fix his household appliances?
I would be wary of calling someone a "fixer-upper" -- to me that means they have something wrong with themselves, since I usually hear, e.g., "that house is a fixer-upper".
