Introduction:

A preposition links nouns, pronouns and phrases to other words in a sentence. The word or phrase that the preposition introduces is called the object of the preposition. A prepositional phrase usually indicates where (by showing direction or location), how (in what way or by what means), or when (at what time or how long) the action in the sentence took place.
These words join nouns to the rest of a sentence we would need several pages to list all the prepositions, but common examples are about, above, at, for, in, ever, to, and with. A proposition can’t function within a sentence unless, the proposition is connected to a noun, so propositions always appear in preposition phrases, These phrases consist of a preposition and noun, which is called the object of the proposition: The woman in the suit went to the office to sit down. The proposition in relates its object, suit, to another noun, woman, so in the suit is a propositional phrase that works as n adjective to describe woman, to the office is an adverbial prepositional phrase that describes where the woman went. Note that the word to in to sit down isn’t preposition: rather, it’s part of the infinitive form of the verb to sit. The phrase doesn’t have an object, so you don’t have a propositional phrase.
When we give information, you should mak sure every idea is clear, and almost each and everything in the sentence has clear function. Like, look at this sentence:
I live Abbottabad
The connection between “I” and “live” is very clear – “I” is the subject, and “live” is the verb. However, the relationship between “live” and “Peshawar” is not clear. Do you live in Peshawar, near Peshawar, North of Peshawar, South of Peshawar … the list goes on. In some cases, the noun immediately after the verb can be the direct object. To clear this confusion, prepositions are widely-used to get in touch ideas.
Prepositions are “connecting” words – as such, they must always connect two ideas. They connect the noun immediately following them to another idea. The noun immediately following the preposition is called the object of the preposition. A preposition and the object of the preposition are together called a preposition phrase.
