Answer and Feedback
Answer:D
Feedback:Prefixes are letters which we add to the beginning of a word to make a new word with a different meaning.Prefixes can create a new word opposite in meaning to the word the prefix is attached to: possible –impossible, able – unable, like - dislike. The most common negative prefixes in English are in-, un-, non-, de-, dis-, a-, anti-, im-, il-, and ir-.The adjective ‘abnormal’ is formed by adding the negative prefix ab- to the adjective ‘normal’ and means ‘different from what is normal or usual, in a way which is strange or dangerous’ (an abnormal amount of snow; abnormal behavior). The origin of this adjective is French: the alteration of French anormal that comes from Medieval Latin anormalis that comes in its turn from Latin a- + Late Latin normalis (normal).By this formation we have an antonym pair: normal – abnormal. Don’t be confused with the adjective ‘subnormal’ that means ‘below the normal’ (a subnormal amount of rain; a subnormal person).
