Incorrect spelling, explanation: necessary is an adjective form of the noun necessity. Thus, if it is: necessity + ary = necessary (we are replacing ending -ity, that is typical for noun, into -ary), it is mistaken to add one more c, and
neccessary is an incorrect spelling.
Correct spelling, explanation: the word is created from a noun necessity, which means a strong need of something. Due to the spelling of the noun, we can’t add one more c to the adjective and necessary is the correct form.
