What are prepositions?
Think of prepositions as linking or connecting words. Prepositions connect nouns to other words in a sentence, or in other words, prepositions are the glue that holds a sentence together. A sentence may technically make sense without prepositions, but it will sound clanky and unintelligent. Prepositions hold all the bigger, more important words together.
What are the elements of literature or a story?
The elements of literature include setting, plot, character, conflict, and resolution.
In your writing what is the difference between the words your and you’re? Please include examples of them in use.
Well, let’s start with the fact that “you’re” is a contraction. This means it’s two words out together. “You’re” is the words “you” and “are” spliced together into one. This means if you could take your sentence and replace “you’re” with “you are” then you are using it correctly. Now, that also means that if you can not replace your use of the word in a sentence with “you are” then you are probably using the wrong spelling. “Your” is possessive and implies ownership or relationship to some degree. Use “your” when describing a person's relation to another person, their belongings, and things like that. Example of "your" used correctly: Your sister called and left you a message. Example of "you're" used correctly: You’re going to be late if you take much longer.
