Class 12 English Grammar Unit 18 Prepositions Exercise

Unit 18 Grammar


If you didn't pick up on the importance of understanding the definition of grammatical terms like prepositions (of, at, in, by, to, etc.) in primary school, you've lost out on a lot. To start, the word "preposition" is hardly what you'd call a "difficult grammatical phrase." You can guarantee that knowing parts of speech, what prepositions are, and other similar information will come in handy when it comes time to take standardized exams like the ACT or SAT to see whether you are a suitable candidate for a scholarship to college. You wonder why it's important to study grammar structures; one valid argument is that it's tough to instruct a students in, say, verb conjugation if the student has never heard of a verb before. You can learn it with practise.
