    With negative prefixes, I'm afraid it's often just a case of looking words up.

    Please see my corrections to your question. Remember the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    'Incomplete' is not a verb; it's an adjective. 'Complete' can be a verb, but you can't add 'in' to negate it as a verb.
