    Here is your answer.
    the nouns of the first three words are
    growth
    diminishment
    strengthening

    The adjectives that best suit the remainig words are

    decreasing
    deteriorating
    developing
    falling etc

    You can make an adjective of a verb by adding -ing to the word.
    I recommend that you get a Thesaurus. It is a book that gives many synonyms (words with e same or similar meanings) and this will help you with this and other similar questions.
