    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    The prefix "UN-" means "NOT" because it is commonly used to negate the meaning of a word, such as "unhappy" meaning "not happy." Similarly, the prefix "DIS-" also means "NOT" and is used to create words with a negative or opposite meaning, like "disagree" meaning "not agree." Additionally, the prefix "IN-" can also mean "NOT" and is often used to negate the meaning of a word, such as "invisible" meaning "not visible." Therefore, all of the given prefixes - "UN-", "DIS-", and "IN-" - mean "NOT."

    The correct answer is "with". The prefix "with-" is added to the word "stand" to form the word "withstanding", which means to tolerate or endure something. In this context, the sentence means that the person could barely tolerate or endure the loud music.
