Q1:When something is not, sometimes we put "Un", sometimes we put "Dis" "Im" "In" "Il"(at the front) or "less"( at the last)
What are the rules?And examples.
Q2:When we say a person do some job,we put "er" at the last.
Like fisher is "er".
Why "beggar" we put "ar" at the last?
Why "tailor" we put "or" at the last?
If their is more please tell me.
And the rules.

i dont think theres a strict rule for it but as a general rule of thumb,
il- prefix for something that begins with an 'L' eg. legal, legitimate, literate etc
ir - prefix for something tht begins with an R eg. regular, responsible, relevant etc
seriously.. theres not a single rule in english that all sentencing or structures have to abide by.. in other words there are so many exceptions in every case of grammar so the best way of learning it is really to read more and broadly and somehow get used to the way how they are used in different contexts
hope that helps alittle
