We do not use prepositions in some common expressions. In some other expressions, we can leave them out.
After discuss, enter, marry, lack, resemble and approach
Verbs like discuss, enter, marry, lack, resemble and approach are normally followed by direct objects without prepositions.
Before next, last etc.
Prepositions are not used before a number of expressions beginning next, last, this, that, one, every, each, some, any and all.
Before what time…?
We usually leave out at before what time.
In an informal style, at is often dropped before about + time expression.
Measurement expressions after be
Expressions containing words like height, weight, length, size, shape, age and colour are usually connected to the subject of the clause by the verb be, without a preposition.
We do not use to before home.
In informal English, at can be left out before home.
