    seperated >> of

    Sometimes, I really do not know how to greet all because all the greetings I am using are cliches.

    So, please allow me to skip it and jump to my questions. :)

    today's question is about the separation of "of", just like below:
    After the flood, nothing of the village remained.
    After the fllood, nothing remained of the village.

    did you notice that the "of-phrase" is moved to the end of the sentence?
    Are they all right?

    Both are OK but the lst sentence is more common.

    Yes. Both of the sentences are grammatically accurate.
