Here are some words translated from an artificial language.
relftaga means carefree
otaga means careful
fertaga means careless

Which word could mean "aftercare"?
Answer & Solution
Answer: (C) tagazen

Solution: In this language, the root word taga, which means care, follows the affix (relf, o–, or fer–). Therefore, in the word aftercare, the root word and the affix would be reversed in the artificial language. The only choice, then, is tagazen, because tagafer would mean less care.

Here are some words translated from an artificial language.
briftamint means militant
uftonel means occupied
uftonalene means occupation

Which word could mean "occupant"?
Answer & Solution
Answer: (B) uftonamint
