Sometimes words appear as though they begin with a prefix when they actually do not. Each of the following word groups contains a word that looks as though it begins with a number prefix, but does not. Write the word that has no prefix in the blank at the right.
2.decade, decipher, decimal, decimate________________________________
3. trisect, triceps, trio, tribute_________________________________
4. biology, bisect, biweekly, biennial________________________________
5. quintet, quinine, quintuplet, quinquennial____________________________
We'll be glad to check your answers.
To get you started --

2. Dec- means 10.
Check a dictionary for others.
