Contrações 2: com DE, EM + artigos indefinidos um(uns), uma(s) e/ou POR, ou 'A' (prep.) + artigos 'a(s)', 'o(s)'

Fill in with the proper preposition + article ('um' or 'uma' and its plurals, the same for prepositions 'por' and for 'a') contraction. Write all the answers in the right sequence, in the box:

'De' = of, from, about, by
'Em' = in, on at, upon
Preposition 'A' = to
Preposition 'por' = by, for, about


DE for the contraction = 'd'
EM for the contraction = 'n'
'A' + o(s) = ao; _ + a(s) = à(s) - [an 'a' contracted with a fem. article = à]
POR for the contraction = 'pe'

de + um/uns = dum/duns, _ +uma(s) = duma(s) [Portugal only - in Brazil de um/ de uns; de uma(s)];
em + um/uns = num/nuns, _ + uma(s) = numa(s)
preposition a contracted = 'à' it is called a 'crase' or 'a craseado'.
Por + a(s) = pela(s), _ + o(s) = pelo(s)
