Practice Preposition!

Are you sure that your preposition is right?

Let’s make sure that to solve these questions!

  1. George Washington was born 1.___ Virginia 2.___ 1732.
  2. He died 3.___ the age 4.___ 67, on the 14th 5.____December 1799.
  3. The capital 6.___ the United States and one federal state are named 7.___ George Washington.

answers:1.IN  2.IN  3.AT  4.OF   5.OF  6.OF   7.AFTER

#1 is about place and it shows country. #2 is about time and especially year. #3 is about the certain time.  #4 is what does it belongs to as well as #5 and #6. #7 is a little tricky, but name after is a phrase of verb and it means to give someone the same name.

Thus prepositions questions are mixed basic rules with some irregular grammar or a phrase of verb. So if you are often confused about prepositions, you would need to make it clear what you tend to stumble.
