Prepositions and Adverbs

An adverb is a word used to tell when, where, and/or how. It describes a verb, another adverb, or a preposition.
Example: John runs fast. (Fast is how John runs. Fast is the adverb.)

A preposition is a word that acts with a noun, or with adjectives and nouns to make a prepositional phrase. Prepositional phrases can act as adverbs or adjectives(words that tell you how much, how many, which kind, which one).
Example: The cat sits on the grass.
(Where does the cat sit? On the grass is the prepositional phrase that acts as an adverb.)
The cat on the grass sits.
(Which cat sits? On the grass tells you which cat. On the grass is a prepositional phrase used as an adjective.)
Put in the proper Spanish preposition or adverbs to translate the sentence.
