Choose the appropriate word to fill in the blank.
She was wandering around _______ her friends.
Correct Answer : c ) WithExplanation :
The sentence states that the subject (she) was wandering around in the company of her friends. The chosen word should replace the “company of” in the context.
Let us look at the meaning of the prepositions provided as options to understand which one of them fits the blank best:
- ‘Of’ is used to express a relation between something and its part.
- ‘About’ means on the subject of.
- ‘With’ means accompanied by.
- ‘By’ is used to identify the agent performing the action.
From the above meanings, we can see that the preposition that best fits the context of the sentence is, “with”, which is option C.
All the other options can, therefore, be eliminated.
Hence, (C) is the correct answer.
