What rule applies to the word desire
answer: group ii. when the root is a full word except for a final e, the forms usually are spelled with -able.
explanation: the word will be deplorable. -able will be used with the word 'deplore-'. the group ii is when the root is a full word except for a final e, the forms usually are spelled with -able is used for the word deplore- because the word deplore- has 'e' at the end of it.
Group III the suffix -able always follows i.
Rule C - Group III: The suffix “-able” always follows “i”.
When a word ends in “y”, such as “envy”, the “y” becomes an “i” when adding the suffix“-able” to make new adjectives. In this case, envy becomes enviable. There are other examples which exemplify this rule: justify - justifiable, or rely - reliable.
The actual answer is group III
Envy is a full word so it is always followed with "-able" except after 'i'.
The correct answer is "Group II. When the root is a full word except for a final e, the forms usually are spelled with -able"
The passage presented in the question explains the basic rules for adding the suffix "-able" to a root word or basic unit that forms words, for doing this, there are eight different rules that define the correct way to add this suffix mainly based on the features of a word. In the case of the word "desire" this word is a root by itself which means it cannot be reduced to smaller particles and this word ends in "-e", also the correct form of adding the suffix "-able" is in the form "desirable" which means the final "e-" is omitted and the suffix is added. Therefore, this word belongs to the rule "Group II", because as desire words of this group are full words excerpt by the "-e" that need to be omitted to add the prefix.
The correct answer is Group II. "When the root is a full word except for a final "e", the forms usually are spelled with -able".
In language, a root word refers to the basic unit of a word that cannot be reduced to a smaller unit. Because of this, new words can be formed by adding prefixes or suffixes which are letters or syllables placed before or after root words. However, in most cases, the use of suffixes and prefixes follow strict grammatical rules that work as a guide to add a prefix or suffix depending on the root word. This is the case of the suffix "-able" that means capable of and which is added to root words according to different rules described in the question which classifies root words according to eight different groups and describes in which way should the suffix "-able" added according to the features of the root word.
For the word "desire" which means the action of wishing something, the rule that applies to this word is the one described in Group III or "When the root is a full word except for a final "e", the forms usually are spelled with -able" considering the word desire is a full word that cannot be reduced to shorter units and it also ends in "-e", therefore the suffix is added by omitting the "-e" which means the word becomes "desirable" and means something attractive or capable of being desired. Thus, the rule that applies to the word "desire" is Group II.
The rule that applies to the word desire is Group II. When the root is a full word except for a final e, the forms usually are spelled with -able.
Suffix -able is used to turn verbs into adjectives and means that something can be done or that is capable of something. There are many spelling rules used to introduce the suffix -able; the one that applies to the word desire is Group II, since it turns the word desire into desirable.
