(Hello. Good to see you anain. One more question about prepositions: Which prepositions should I use? Are they all acceptable?)

• English -

In sentences 1 - 6, I'd say #2 is best, #1 is next best, and the rest are about the same. Sentences 4 - 6 are a bit awkward with 'left' before 'middle.' I can't explain why; it's just the way they sound when you read them aloud.

In questions 7 - 10, only #8 sounds off. The others are fine.
