    Re: Preposition

    Under >> extending or directly below

    The cupboard is under the stairs.

    Underneath/beneath >>situated directly below

    Put your shoes underneath/beneath the bed

    [
    these three are pretty well interchangeable]

    Below
    >> at a lower level than

    The river runs below the road.
