Which of the following is a prepositional phrase? a) he didn't feel safe, b) leaving us behind, c)without supervision
Recognize a prepositional phrase when you see one.
At the minimum, a prepositional phrase will begin with a preposition and end with a noun, pronoun, gerund, or clause, [ the "object" of the preposition.
The object of the preposition will often have one or more modifiers to describe it. These are the patterns for a prepositional phrase:
preposition + noun, pronoun, gerund, or clause
preposition + modifier(s) + noun, pronoun, gerund, or clause
Here are some examples of the most basic prepositional phrase:
At = preposition; home = noun.
In = preposition; time = noun.
From = preposition; Richie = noun.
With = preposition; me = pronoun.
By = preposition; singing = gerund.
About what we need
About = preposition; what we need = noun clause.
Most prepositional phrases are longer, like these:
From my grandmother
From = preposition; my = modifier; grandmother = noun.
Under the warm blanket
Under = preposition; the, warm = modifiers; blanket = noun.
In the weedy, overgrown garden
In = preposition; the, weedy, overgrown = modifiers; garden = noun.
Along the busy, six-lane highway
Along = preposition; the, busy, six-lane = modifiers; highway = noun.
Without excessively worrying
Without = preposition; excessively = modifier; worrying = gerund.www.chompchomp.com/terms/prepositionalphrase.htm

Prepositional phrases are groups of words beginning with a preposition and ending with an object of the preposition.
Psst! Object of the preposition is just a fancy name for the noun or pronoun that follows the preposition.
near hotels, for Isaac, [ at Kyle's bowling ball
The whole phrase comes together to function as one part of speech. These guys usually act as adjectives or adverbs.Notice that the phrases above all begin with prepositions (near, for, at) and end with nouns or pronouns (hotels, Isaac, bowling ball).
These phrases must all have a preposition and an object of the preposition, and they may also have other words in them.
They may have adjectives that describe the object of the preposition.
near fancy hotels
at Kyle's bowling ball
across the large bedroom
They may also have adverbs modifying the adjectives.
near extremely fancy hotels
across the rather large bedroomwww.english-grammar-revolution.com/prepositional-phrases.html
