    Re: adverbials II

    Hello Navi Tasan, teachers and everybody!
    Do you mind if I join the question?
    7. He is getting prepared for his exam appointed on Monday.
    8. He is getting prepared for his Monday exam.
    9. He is preparing for his exam appointed on Monday.
    And what's the difference between the meaning of the 7th and the 9th sentences?
    Thanks in advance!

    3-He is getting prepared for his exam of Monday. (The exam which will take place on Monday.)
    4-He is getting prepared for his exam for Monday. (The exam which will take place on Monday.)
    Say: on Monday.

    5-He is getting prepared for his Monday's exam. (The exam which will take place on Monday.)
    Say: his exam or Monday's exam.

    6-He is getting prepared for his exam of the 23rd of June. (The exam which will take place on the 23rd of June.)
    That is good.

    There is no difference between "getting prepared for" and "preparing for", but "appointed" does not fit in either sentence (7 or 9). (The other sentence is fine.)
