I need help with prepositional phrases. I’m given sentences and I’m supposed to rewrite them changing the position of the prepositional phrases so that the sentences are not confusing. If they are already correct, I’m supposed to write correct.

I made corrections. Are these correct Ms. Sue? Thank you so much for the help as well.
