    My specialty is math.
    There are several tutors occasionally on line who speak German.
    I know German since it is my mother-tounge, but if you ask me for the rules, I wouldn't know them.
    I just know it sounds correct for the above choices.

    We do not tutor individual students as such. All tutors on this website are volunteers and do it without pay. If you have questions, just post them and if a tutor is on line you usually will get a reply.

    The word that has to be used for "the" in German depends upon both the type of preposition that it follows, and gender of the noun that follows it. It can also depend upon how a thing got where it is, which makes no sense to me and is hard to explain. Your grammar text should have the rules; I never could learn them all.

    My German wife assures me that the following answers are correct:
    (1) hinter dem Sofa
    (2) unter den Tisch
    (3) auf dem Tisch
    (4) an die Wand
    (5) in der Ecke
    (6) auf dem Schreibtisch

    I apologize for my delay in answering, and am glad that my answers agree with Reiny. It took me four hours to get my wife to help me; by then Reiny had posted his answer already.
