Mistakes With Prepositions

Preposition mistakes happen when the wrong preposition is used. For example “They reached at the airport at 6pm.” -incorrect . “They reached the airport at 6pm.” – correct.

These are typical mistakes that I hear from English students. Especially 3 and 4. 8 is ok both ways.
