    beside/besides

    Research in the work place reveals that people work for many reasons..............

    A Beside money
    B Besides money

    The answer here is B but why can't I use A? I thought "beside" is an adverb? And even if it's a verb, isn't "many reasons" plural?

    Here, "besides" is a preposition meaning "apart from", "other than".
    "I have no way of making money besides the dishwashing job".
