Synonyms of "Fair" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between fair, blonde and light ?
A: All three can mean the same or similar things if specifically referring to hair.
"She is fair-haired."
"She is blonde." (Note: many English speakers don't know this but you write blonde for a girl and blond for a boy)
"She has light hair."
However, without the word hair being specifically mentioned, the words can mean different things.
"She is fair" could mean that she has a lighter complexion/light-colored skin, she is a person who judges or acts fairly/justly, or she is pretty or beautiful (this is more of an old-fashioned phrase but you may see it pop up some time.)
"She is blonde" still refers to hair color but if a person calls someone without blonde hair a blonde, they typically mean that she is ditzy/dumb/stupid. It is an old-fashioned insult that began decades ago that people with blonde hair were unintelligent, especially if the hair was unnaturally dyed. You don't hear it often these days, especially by younger generations, but it is important to know, nonetheless.
"She is light" would be like fair in that it would refer to skin tone/color. "She is a light person," though, could mean that she has a happy, joyful personality.
I hope this helps!
Q: What is the difference between fair enough and make sense ?
A: fair enough = okay, not bad,
make sense= you understand?
Q: What is the difference between fair and impartial ?
A: Most of the time they will both work. Fair is more common in conversation. I usually see impartial in legal settings. Example: "The judge needs to be impartial."
Q: What is the difference between That's fair. and That's only fair. ?
A: "That's only fair." is usually used to emphasize that the situation calls for fairness.

For example: "I treated you for dinner the last three times, so you should pay tonight." "You're right, that's only fair."

"That's fair" could have different meanings depending on the situation. Usually I hear this when one person makes a good point that the other person acknowledges as correct. It's like saying "You make a fair point." or "It's fair for you to say that."

For example: "You really shouldn't complain so much. You have a good life." "That's fair."
Q: What is the difference between fair-->>pronunciation and fare-->>pronunciation ?
A: "Hey, that's not fair!"

"You must pay the fare."

They are pronounced the same way, though I will say that "fair" has a higher pitch than "fare". It's really subtle.
