Understanding Prepositions of Place:

Prepositions of place help us describe the location of objects, people, or things. They answer questions like “Where is it?” and “Where are they?” Some common prepositions of place include:

  • In: This preposition is used to describe something inside an enclosed space. For example, “The book is in the bag.”
  • On: “On” is used when something is in contact with a surface. You might say, “The keys are on the table.”
  • At: “At” is used to pinpoint a specific location. For instance, “She is at the library.”
  • Under: This preposition describes something beneath or below another object. “The cat is under the table.”
  • Between: When something is in the middle of two objects, you can use “between.” “The sandwich is between two plates.”
  • Behind: Use “behind” when something is at the back of another thing. “The car is behind the house.”
