    21. Which of the following words are synonyms?

    unkempt, disarranged

    22. __________ is a word with a prefix that means "before" and a root that means "adult."

    None of the words meet those requirements. Answer sought is probably 'premature,' but 'mature' does not mean 'adult.'

    23. The words inarticulate and impassively have prefixes meaning

    “not” or “without.”

    24. Which of the following words contains an affix that means “full of”?

    frivolous

    25. The prefix inter means

    "between."

    26. Which of the following words comes from a Latin root that means "to end"?

    None of those given. 'Terminal' comes from a word meaning 'end' as a noun, but there is no verb form of that word meaning 'to end.'

    27.

    Many people consider grey, wet weather melancholy but think of sunny, dry weather as happy.

    Don't know what the question may be, but the expected answer is probably 'depressing.'

    multitude.

    a great number

    32. Which of the following words is a synonym of joyance?

    None of those given. Joyance = a joyous feeling, gladness. And it's an archaic word - you would never find that in use today.

    33. Read the following sentence, and choose the best definition for the bolded word.

    To strive for a challenging goal, even if you think you may fail, builds your stamina and confidence.

    Don't know which is bolded, but probable answer is 'make an effort.'

    "into."

    35. A word adopted into English from French that means “simple” or “lacking sophistication” is
