Questions with Prepositions at the End 

Hi, dear readers! Are you having a problem understanding or making questions which end with a preposition? For example: WHO do you go WITH? Or WHERE do you come  FROM? These are some of the easier ones, but my students hardly ever understand that it means WITH WHO did you go? and FROM WHERE do you come (originate). These questions are a bit tricky, especially if the sentence is long. But let’s look at some typical questions with prepositions at the end so you can understand them better.
