Homework Help: English

Posted by Mike on Sunday, March 20, 2011 at 3:15pm.

Can you please check one more thing:
1)The students were delighted by /with their exam results.
Are "by" and "with" possible? Is the meaning the same as "they are pleased, satisfied, content with? their exam result?
2) They are depressed, sad, happy, unhappy, miserable, enthusiastic, anxious, worried about their exam result. Is the preposition "about" correct?
3)You dry the dishes with a dishtowel (BrE tea towel).
When you wash the dishes, you sponge them down (or you wipe them with a sponge?)
4) What do you generally use to wash the dishes by hand? A dish cloth, a sponge?
5) When I set the table, I usually lay a saucepan mat so as not to ruin the table cloth.
6) Can "nervous" and "cheerful" be followed by a preposition in English?
