2.The prefix ana- means “often”, the root chron means “time,” and the suffix –ism means “a condition indicated by the prefix” so anachronism means all the time.
3.The prefix ana- means “backwards”, the root chron means “always,” and the suffix –ism means “in this way” so anachronism means to fall behind the times.
4.The prefix ana- means “against”, the root chron means “time,” and the suffix –ism means “a condition indicated by the prefix” so anachronism means things don’t follow the order of time.

3.An article shows a correlation between uniforms and higher test scores; Mario could argue that the article shows that schools care more about test scores than the wellbeing of their students.
