    Default Challenges with Preposition

    What do you mean by 'I am doing away with this section'

    Shouldn't it be I am doing away from this section.

    I guess it is a challenge for me in understanding prepositions well.

    Dear Teachers and fellow participants,

    Could any one of you kindly help me with this aspect of my English: problem with prepositions? What best can i do? Reading Grammar books is sufficient?

    Thanks,
    Kiran

    Dear Kiranlegend:

    do away with - definition of do away with by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    'do away with' is an idiomatic expression that means 'to put an end to', 'to eliminate', 'to kill', etc.

    There are many internet sites (including this one) that have explanations, quizzes, examples, etc. of preposition usage in English.

    I hope this is helpful,

    Petra
