    correct prepositions

    Good evening, i'm confused about these three sentences:

    1- She is an expert at/in drafting the minutes of a meeting.
    2- I was moved to tears of/with/by sorrow. ( I know I can say sorrow moved me to tears as well, but i'd like to know what prepositions is better here)
    3- She was born of/to two intelligent people.

    Thanks in advance.

    You try first. (Look up the words in a dictionary (this is a good one) to see how they are used.)

    By the way, always capitalise "I".

    CS's answer is still valid. Without some effort from you, you're not likely to obtain much help from members/contributors.
