Reading

posted by .

I'm in seventh grade and working on my test for Reading. Everything is fairly simple and easy, but I came across a question that I cannot determine the answer for. The question is: "What is the meaning of the prefix pro- in the word 'proposed'?" The answer choices are: "above", "together", "forward", and "between". I have tried to rule out answers that I am certain are not correct. I am pretty sure that "above" and "together" are not correct, but I am not completely sure. I have tried looking up online what the prefix pro- means, but I did not find anything helpful. *Please do not give me an answer if you are not 100% sure that you have the right answer. *When giving me an answer, please explain the answer to me and do NOT just give me the answer, as I actually like learning and I want to fully understand the answer for future purposes. Thank you in advance; your help is appreciated.
