  1. Here's a list of common prepositions.

    http://www.englishclub.com/grammar/prepositions-list.htm

    In your sentences, I've enclosed the prepositional phrases in parentheses. The first word in each phrase is a preposition.

    1)Chhirps (of the newly hatched chicks) could be heard (in the corridor).

    2)A plane made an emergancy landing (in a corn field).

    3)The elephants lumbered (past us) (toward the water hole).

    Prepositions don't have subjects.
