    Does the word ''alongside'' already accompany a preposition inside its meaning?

    Am I made to left the preposition ''of'' in the following sentece? ''A band of new native reformers appeared alongside of Osmant retirement''.

    I have no idea what you mean by "Am I made to left the preposition of ...". Can you try to reword that part?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    The "of" is not required after "alongside". I don't understand the rest of the sentence.

    You have used the wrong word and the wrong tense.

    Am I obliged to leave out ...
    Am I obliged to omit ...

    "Of" is not required. "Alongside" works perfectly well on its own. I don't understand the rest of the sentence either. Is "Osmant" a person?
