Sometimes, I really do not know how to greet all because all the greetings I am using are cliches.

So, please allow me to skip it and jump to my questions. :)

today's question is about the separation of "of", just like below:
After the flood, nothing of the village remained.
After the fllood, nothing remained of the village.

did you notice that the "of-phrase" is moved to the end of the sentence?
Are they all right?

Both are OK but the lst sentence is more common.

Yes. Both of the sentences are grammatically accurate.
