Here I'm posting some exercises about negative prefixes in English. Click on the links to do the exercises.

Remember: negative prefixes are attached to nouns, adjective and verbs to make them negative. Thus, the adjective happy can be made negative by adding the prefix -un, unhappy. The meaning would be similar to the use of not after the verb: She is unhappy = she is not happy.

Main negative prefixes: -un, -dis and -in (-ir, -il, -im)

Examples: agree -> disgree
                  decent -> indecent
                  believable -> unbelievable
                  responsbile -> irresponsible
                  legal -> illegal
                  possible -> impossible

After doing the exercises, let me know how you did down below in the comments box, please.

Good luck!!
