what is prefix with simple example

II. Look at these words.
incompetent                          speechless

A prefix is a syllable, which we put at the beginning of a
word to form a new word. For example by putting the prefix ‘in’
before the word ‘competent’ we form the word ‘incompetent’.
Similarly a suffix is a syllable, which we put at the end of a word to
form a new word. For example by adding the suffix ‘-less’ to the
word ‘speech’ we form the word speechless.

Task:  Add suitable prefixes / suffixes to the words in capitals
            at the end of each sentence, to fill in the blanks. 

Look at the examples first.

e.g. 1. The dog was beaten
           by its owner for its…………… OBEDIENCE

      2.  Sita’s mother shouts at
           her for her …………………nature WILL

Answer: (1) disobedience  (2) wilful

1. The audience expressed their……
by shouting and booing.                    PLEASURE

2. Our teacher is very strict.
She will not allow anyone to ……… BEHAVE
