Prepositions Exam: Trivia Knowledge Quiz - Quiz

Are you familiar with prepositions? Prepositions specify relationships among other words in a sentence. Many prepositions explain something or tell us when or where something occurred. Most prepositions have several definitions, and the meaning changes quite a bit through contexts. It is also imperative to remember that ending the sentence with a preposition is not a grammatical error. If you want to become more astute with your prepositions, this is the quiz for you.

    Explanation
    The word "about" is the correct answer because it fits grammatically in the sentence and makes sense in the context.

    C. At
    Explanation

      Between

    • C.

      Under

    Correct Answer
    A. Across
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "across". This is because when we say "the bridge is across the river," it implies that the bridge spans from one side of the river to the other, indicating that it is positioned over the river. The word "across" denotes the idea of crossing from one side to another, which aligns with the concept of a bridge extending over a river.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    The dog walked _________ the road.

    • A.

      Under

    • B.

      For

    • C.

      Down

    Correct Answer
    C. Down
    Explanation
    The word "down" is the correct answer because it indicates the direction in which the dog walked. The word "under" suggests that the dog walked beneath the road, which doesn't make sense in this context. Similarly, the word "for" doesn't provide any information about the dog's movement. Therefore, "down" is the most appropriate choice as it implies that the dog walked along the road in a downward direction.
