      The preposition + noun combinations are underlined. These preposition and noun combinations are called prepositional phrases. If you think a word is a preposition and there's a noun following it, chances are it's a preposition. Even if it's not, don't worry about being 100% on which words are prepositions; the SAT doesn't test you on them directly.
