    Correct Answer
    D. Both A and C
    Explanation
    A prefix is added to the front of a root word. This is because a prefix is a word part that is added to the beginning of a word to change its meaning. By adding a prefix to a root word, it alters the original word's definition. Therefore, the correct answer is "added to the front of a root word."

Root words are the basic building blocks of words and can be modified or combined with other word parts to create new words.
