Why is 'desservir' to clear and to service at the same time?
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate servir and other -vir verbs in Le Présent (present tense)"

Bonjour Fiona !
Here it's one of those weird cases in French where usage has rendered a prefix meaningless in some contexts.
In the same vein, you also have "rentrer" being used to express "to come in" (entrer) as well as "to come back".
I hope that's helpful!Bonne journée !

Although the lesson deos not specify that I simply encountered it in the quiz and got a wrong answer for it.

I had a look at the questions linked to that lesson, and all of them include a hint with what verb to use :)
Bonne journée !
