Prepositions of Location

In this exercise, we’ll focus specifically on prepositions of location, which tell us where an object is positioned in space. These prepositions help us describe the spatial relationships between objects and places.

Before we jump into the exercise, let’s review some common prepositions of location:

  • On: Indicates that something is positioned directly above and in contact with a surface.
  • In: Suggests that something is contained within the boundaries of an area or space.
  • Under: Describes something positioned beneath or below another object.
  • Beside: Indicates that something is positioned next to or alongside another object.
  • At: Refers to a specific point or place.
  • Between: Describes the position of something in the middle of two objects or places.
  • Above: Indicates that something is positioned higher than another object.
  • Below: Describes the position of something lower than another object.
  • Next to: Indicates that something is positioned immediately adjacent to another object.

Now that we’ve refreshed our understanding of these prepositions, it’s time to put our knowledge to the test! Below, you’ll find a set of multiple-choice questions where you’ll need to select the correct preposition of location to complete each sentence.
