The word "before" ,is what part of speech in the following sentence?
I plan to start writing before seven
o'clock each morning.
A. Adjective C. Preposition
C. Adverb D. Interjection
Answer : C
Am I correct
I don't think so.
I beg to differ... one of the definitions for "before" being used as a preposition is "previous in time" . "Before seven" would meet that criteria...... I think
Aha! I see it again -- there are two C's here!!
So, Jiya -- which is it? And adverb or a preposition??
My mistake.Iwas leaning towards the first C .Preposition
Preposition is correct, as GuruBlue said, yes.
