  2. Both you and "priyam" are correct about #s 1-4. In 1 and 2, either of those prepositions can be used.

    I disagree with both of you about #5, though. If students are bored by the teacher, "He" didn't make that happen! The teacher did!!

    #5 would be better written like this: The teacher bored the whole class.
