You need to try these yourself first, because they look like homework exercises, and we don't do your homework for you on this site!

It might be more effective for you to try out your knowledge of prepositions by choosing first, then someone could help you understand those that you chose incorrectly. Emotion: big smile
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
Hi Sdies:

I noticed that people were using different preps. in the same sentence, so got confused by these. Could you tell me which are the best or correct preps. in the above-metioned sentences?

Your answers will be much appreciated!
