    Re: prepositional phrase

    You have to learn what preposition goes with what. It often doesn't make sense.

    Write a few and let's see how you do.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
