    Re: Types of Prepositions

    See how much more helpful that would have been in post #1?

    Do you doubt the veracity of the information on that webpage?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's easy to create a website and write whatever you want to. But it's difficult to find an authentic answer. That's why I post here for confirmation.

    And, this, my friends, is why we need a "mic drop" emoji.
    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.
