Quick Preposition Quiz

Average: 4.1 (20 votes)

In English we use prepositions with certain verbs and nouns.

Examples:

"I love swimming in summer."

"I am writing my final exam on Thursday."

Complete the sentences and insert prepositions if and where they are needed.

Two sentences are perfect just as they are so be careful! Use "-" when no preposition is needed.
