The answer should be trivial. Extra is right but trivial is more accurate.

I think trivial should be the right answer as its is the right opposite word for 'essential'.

Aditya said: (Jan 23, 2012)  
Essential literally means "very necessary" therefore trivial should be right answer.

Kumar Sourabh said: (Dec 23, 2012)  
Yes, extra makes no sense here, the opposite of essential has to be trivial. Essential means very important and trivial means not very important. The opposite of extra would be lesser or less.

Kalyani said: (Sep 23, 2013)  
Essential means important, where as trivial means unimportant so answer is trivial and extra makes no sense.

Extra as also known as unnecessary.

Gopika said: (Dec 18, 2013)  
Extra is right answer because trivial means little importance or tittle necessary. Where as extra means more than is needed. Little importance is not opposite to absolute importance. And opposite to absolute is not absolute like not complete, not pure. Just think a while, you will get the analogy between them.

They are both antonyms i.e extra and trivial.

Naz said: (Oct 27, 2015)  
The antonym of trivial is essential!

Hemaanth said: (Jun 23, 2016)  
Trivial is the right answer.

Rahul said: (Jun 24, 2016)  
I think its answer is trivial because trivial means a little value or importance.

Jyo said: (Jan 27, 2017)  
Yes, the answer is trivial.
