    Re: preposition

    You don't necessarily need a preposition with the word near. Example:
    He was standing near her when she sneezed.

    Post Re: preposition

    thank you sir, for repply

    hear i have a problem with these 4 sentences,
    1, I got there just after you left - a near miss,
    2, She and her near friend left early,
    3, the war led to a near doubling of oil prices.
    4, they came near to tears seeing the plight of the victims.

    which one is incorrect, why,

    and another

    is it right to use,

    "sun, the star near you." or which word i use other then to "near".

    yours truly,

    birru.
