I have no idea what a pendix is.
An appendix is a supplementary, accessory or dependent part attached to a main structure. The word is commonly used to refer to the appendix vermiformis, the worm-like evagination of the caecum. In Afrikaans it’s also known as the blindederm. Let me know if you have more questions. Good luck.
