Day 6. Word Formation II

Today we continue with Word Formation. Here’s an edited version of an exercise from a book called Objective Proficiency. Feel free to share your answers in the comments!
But before you start, here are five top tips:
  1. Read through the text carefully and decide which form of the given word you need to use. (noun, adjective verb, adverb)
  2. Be careful as you will need to use a negative prefix or another form of prefix at least once.
  3. Check to see if a noun needs to be plural.
  4. All the words must be correctly spelled. American spelling is acceptable.
  5. Write your answers in CAPITAL LETTERS on your answer sheet.
