    -ate

    Explanation
    The suffix "-ate" can be added to a verb to form a noun that denotes the action or process of the verb. In this case, "cause" and "make" are both verbs that can be transformed into nouns by adding "-ate" at the end. The resulting nouns "cause" and "make" refer to the act of causing or making something to happen.

    Rate this question:

  • 13. 

    -er-or

    Explanation
    The given answer "one who, that which" suggests that the suffix "-er" is used to indicate a person who performs a certain action or has a certain quality, while the suffix "-or" is used to indicate a thing or object that performs a certain action or has a certain quality. This pattern is commonly seen in English language where these suffixes are added to base words to create nouns.

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    -ful

    Explanation
    The suffix "-ful" is used to indicate that something is "full of" or "characterized by" a certain quality or attribute. For example, if someone is "grateful," it means they are "full of" gratitude. Similarly, if something is "beautiful," it is "characterized by" beauty. Therefore, the answer "full of, characterized by" accurately describes the meaning and usage of the suffix "-ful."

    -ist

    Explanation
    The suffix "-ist" is used in English to form nouns and sometimes adjectives that indicate a person who practices, believes in, or is associated with a particular doctrine, ideology, profession, or activity. It often denotes a specialist or someone who has a particular skill, interest, or viewpoint related to the root word to which it is attached. For example: Pianist, Scientist etc. 

    Rate this question:

  • 16. 

    -less

    Explanation
    The word "less" means "without" in this context. It indicates the absence or lack of something. Therefore, the correct answer is "without."

    Rate this question:

  • 17. 

    -ly

    Explanation
    The suffix "-ly" is added to a word to form an adverb that describes how an action is performed or how something is done. It indicates the manner in which something is done or the way in which an action takes place. For example, "quickly" means in a quick manner, "happily" means in a happy manner, and so on. Therefore, the answer "in the manner of" accurately represents the meaning of the suffix "-ly" as it indicates the way or manner in which something is done.

    Rate this question:

  • 18. 

    -ment

    Explanation
    The suffix "-ment" is added to a base word to form a noun that represents an action, state, or result of that action. For example, "movement" represents the action of moving, "excitement" represents the state of being excited, and "achievement" represents the result of accomplishing something. Therefore, the correct answer includes all three meanings of the "-ment" suffix.

    Rate this question:

  • 19. 

    -tion

    Explanation
    The suffix "-tion" is commonly added to verbs to form abstract nouns. In this case, "act" and "state" are both verbs that can be transformed into nouns by adding "-tion." For example, "act" becomes "action" and "state" becomes "state." Therefore, "act" and "state" are the correct answers because they can both be transformed into nouns by adding the suffix "-tion."
