    Adjective question

    Hello!
    I'm a new member! I've started with a test and I didn't understand why is TRUE that
    "We can say worthless but not worthful."
    Worthful isn't an adjective?

    Thank you

    Welcome Marco.
    I've never heard of 'worthful', though I now see that it is listed in some dictionaries (Did you look?) I wouldn't advise using it though (I don't know where they get some of these words from!)
