#GRAMMARTRIVIA: Adjective + Preposition (AT / BY / WITH)

Howdy, fellas! How’s your Monday going? Is it going nice? I hope so. :)

Anyway, I’d like to talk about grammar, which is ‘Adjective + Preposition (AT / BY / WITH)’. Here we go! #GrammarTrivia

1) Adjective + AT / BY something. Study the following example. #GrammarTrivia

Surprised / shocked / amazed / astonished AT / BY something. #GrammarTrivia

Surprised AT / BY: “Everybody was surprised AT (or BY) the news.” #GrammarTrivia

Shocked AT / BY: “I hope you weren’t shocked BY (or AT) what I said.” #GrammarTrivia

2) Adjective + WITH / BY somebody or something. You can learn from the following example. #GrammarTrivia

Impressed WITH / BY: “I’m very impressed WITH (or BY) her English. It’s very good.” #GrammarTrivia

3) Adjective + WITH. Study the following example. #GrammarTrivia

Fed up/bored WITH something: “I don’t enjoy my job anymore. I’m fed up WITH it.” #GrammarTrivia

Therefore, that’s how we use ‘Adjective + Preposition (AT / BY / WITH)’. I hope this short discussion helps you. #GrammarTrivia
