    Post Just + Preposition

    In this sentence, "Trigonometry was just _______ me." What will be the appropriate preposition for this sentence?

    I am thinking 'for', 'in' or maybe 'below'. What is the correct preposition here? Would really like some help.

    "morethan or above" me since you need to solve.

    If you could not understand trigonometry, then 'beyond' is what you are looking for.

    Neither of these are correct.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    These are not correct, eddy.

    Please state that you are not a teacher.

    Hmm, I'm guessing this is the proper word....beyond does make sense.
    Thanks.

    When something is beyond you, it is something you cannot do or cannot understand.
