I actually needed to check that "marry" never goes with "with". Good test.

Hi Luis,

This should be a piece of cake for a "crac" like yourself :-)

I have added a second quiz on prepositions since you wrote the comment.

I'm looking for a better quiz creator. I'll add some trickier questions the next time.

The second quiz is a piece of cake. I think I only hessitated a bit with the second question. I'm looking forward for any new quiz.

8/10 in both

In the first one, I failed 3 and 8 and in the second 6 and 10.
I thought It was going to be worst

Hi Luis,

I think these kind of quizzes could be useful to practice exam-style questions.


I think I only hesitated a bit with the second question. I'm looking forward to a new quiz.

Hi Brigida,

You should have more confidence. Prepositions can be tricky but these exercises should be relatively easy for you - which was the case.

hear of sb = know their name
hear about stg = hear the news
hear from sb = be in touch with you


I thought It was going to be worse
