Hello,

Does the following sentence contain a prepositional phrase?

With the proper help, they'll complete the project early.

Thank You

Yes, there's one prepositional phrase there. Here's a link to a webpage that lists the most common prepositions:

When you decide on what the preposition is, then it'll be easy to determine what words go directly with it. Then you'll have the entire prepositional phrase. Here are some examples:

in the closet
for the red jacket
outside my window
within his new wallet

Let us know what you think the prepositional phrase in that sentence is, and we'll give you feedback.

=)
