5) Let’s learn some grammar :

Look at the underlined words in the following sentences from the lesson.

“Seema Deka drew the window curtains of her living room. Without switching on the light, she sat on the edge of her bed, lost in thought.”

The underlined words on, of and in are prepositions. A preposition is a word usually placed before a noun or a pronoun to show its relation to a place, time, cause, purpose or means.

Here are some common types of prepositions. They denote

a) Place or position :

e.g. in, on, at, over, under, above, below, behind, between, beyond.

i) The book is on the table.

ii) He is at school now.

b) Time :

e.g. at, on, in, for, from……….to, since, during, till/until.

i) She will go to office in the morning.

ii) She sat there for three hours.

c) Cause :

e.g. because of, on account of, from, out of, of.

i) The match had to be stopped because of the rain.

ii) Our school is closed on account of Bihu.

d) Purpose :

e.g. for.

i) I am waiting for the taxi.

e) Means :

e.g. by, with, on, in.

i) I go to school by bus.

ii) I will cut the cake with this knife.

Now fill in the blanks with the correct preposition from the choices given in brackets.

a) Seema was upset …………………………… the information. (with/in/by)

Ans:- by.

b) Swati told her ……………………………. a lady who lived here. (about/of/for)

Ans:- of.

e) Swati goes to school ……………………….. bus. (by/on/with)

Ans:- by.

6) As you know, there are different ways of presenting the same idea.

Find a sentence in the text that has the same meaning as each of the following statements. The first one has been done for you.

a) She was very wise for her age, Seema thought.

She looked so mature, Seema thought.

b) He had expired a few years ago.
