My prefix - always quite fake;
My suffix - time it does take;
My infix - doesn't last long;
My whole - is it all wrong?

What am I?


1 Answer 1


Could be



CON - (CONMAN) - always quite fake;

TEMP - (TEMPORARY) - doesn't last long;

LATE - (LATE - Example: more time is needed to finish the task) - time it does take;

CONTEMPLATE - (Wondering about something) - is it all wrong?

FIXED: OP says LATE rather than PLATE. Makes sense now :)

    $\begingroup$ Exactly right! Though I figured just the last four letters for the suffix. $\endgroup$
