    Enquiry about "for" and "of" !!

    Hi!

    Thanks to great staff who work here .

    I just want to enquire about using "For" and "OF" in sentences because, as a beginner in English language, I can't differ between them??!!
    When should I use "Of" and when should I use "For"??

    Thank you very much.

    Regards,
    Showaiter

    There's no easy rule for prepositions. Once you learn the primary meanings of prepositions (which any dictionary will tell you), their use in other situations is learnt by experience.
    You might find some useful advice by doing a search for "use/usage of prepositions" though.
