What are prepositions?
Prepositions are usually short words. They come before a noun or a pronoun.
- when something happens
- where something is
- how something is done
- possession or an item belonging to someone
Here are some examples of how they can be used:
- I am going to school at 9:00 am.
- The cat is under the table.
- We exercised by swimming.
- I gave the book to my friend.
