  1. You'll learn a lot more if you pick the prepositional phrases yourself.

    I'll get you started by putting parentheses around the prepositional phrases.

    1.(By the 22nd Century,) everyone could be wearing paper clothing. Also, (in the future,) people might take food pills (instead of eating meals.)
