Preposition Quizzes & Trivia

In a cognitive development game called “Complete the Story”, players are requested to come up with a single word per person in order to fill the missing parts between “Once upon a time, there was...”, and “...then they lived happily ever after”. The point of the exercise is to understand that regardless of how juicy and dramatic the nouns and verbs might be, the story would never make sense without those apparently meaningless words that connects them: the prepositions.

That is why we have dedicated special quizzes on prepositions that will help you further understand their importance. “Where does the word preposition come from?”, “What properties are characteristic to most ad positional systems?”, “In what kind of classification do prepositions fall into?” Regard these questions as a demonstration of will and continue answering!
