The Object of This Quiz Is Prepositions
For this month’s quiz we return to the grammar chapter—specifically, paragraphs 5.172–95, which cover prepositions. The main job of prepositions is to set up other words, an important job that usually goes unnoticed (except, maybe, at the end of a sentence).
The first half of the quiz tests your general knowledge of prepositions; the second half considers certain words and the prepositions they’re usually paired with.
(Hint: The first paragraph of this post begins with a preposition; the second ends with one.)
Note: Style guides and dictionaries sometimes disagree. This quiz is designed to test your knowledge of The Chicago Manual of Style, 17th edition.
