Prefix Jeopardy!

The prefixes il-, un-, im-, in- ir-, il-, dis-, non- are very common in English. They all are used to make positive words into negative words. For example, you can can the word “polite” into a negative word meaning “not polite” by adding the prefix im-. Thus, the word is “impolite.” Prefixes are quick and powerful ways to rapidly expand your vocabulary and saving you from using lots of extra words.

On this Challenge Game, read the sentence and substitute a prefix + a word that means the same as the words that are all CAPITALS. Good luck and have fun.
