    I understand what a preposition is. A preposition is a word that describes the relationships between two nouns or pronouns.

    For example:

    "The duck is next to the pond." (next to the pond)
    So that's why I thought #1 would be D.

    There's no preposition at the beginning of this phrase:

    1.[Singing loudly in the shower]

    In that second link, read carefully about the four possibilities ... you can safely ignore the others.

    Study it carefully before you re-post.
