while naming the organic compounds the prefix sec- and tert- are not considered part of the fundamental name. why??????

The IUPAC method doesnot allow to use sec- or ter- prefixes. As per IUPAC, the positions of substituents are given using numbers. This is a more appropriate method also.
We hope that clarifies your query.
