    prepositions

    Plz tell me why do we use "from" in this sentence I am suffering from fever.
    Also tell me why do we use "at" in such sentence:-he is walking at 8 km/hr when "at" is used for position of rest.

    1. It's just the preposition we use after "suffering"
    2. The rules you learn for prepositions will always have exceptions; although you could say that his speedometer pointer is sitting at the 8 km/hr indicator.
