Homework Help: question

Posted by Mindy on Saturday, October 21, 2006 at 2:41pm.

Which sentence has a preposition-related error?

1.There was a fight between the two men.
2.The Cerritos Center is near to my
office.
3.They gave a party for Mary and me.
4.The report was sent to everyone
except her.


One of those sentences has TWO prepositions, next to one another. Only ONE is needed. Let me know which sentence you choose.


I think number 3 is the correct answer,
am I right?


Mindy... what are the two preposition next to one another in that sentence?

So,the answer would be number 4, right?


Remember, you're looking for a preposition error. Please check the Web site recommended by Guru Blue and find the two prepositions next to each other in one of the answers.


THE CORRECT ANSWER IS NUMBER 2.
THE 2 PREPOSITIONS ARE "NEAR TO"
CORRECT?
