A preposition often connects two things – a noun, adjective or verb that comes before it and a noun phrase or pronoun (prepositional object) that comes after it.
In some structures we may put the prepositional object at or near the beginning of a clause. This happens especially in four cases:
wh-questions: What are you looking at?
When a question word is the object of a preposition, the preposition most often comes at the end of the clause.
When a relative pronoun is the object of a preposition, the preposition often goes at the end of a clause.
In passive structures, prepositions go with their verbs.
Infinitive complements can have prepositions with them.
