We have learnt prepositions in this lesson

We have learn WH-words in this lesson.

Let’s see how preposition can be used along with WH-question words.
e.g. “With whom” , “For whom”,”By when”,”From where” etc. Here we used “with”,”for”,”by” to WH-question words “who”,”when”.

1) Prepositions with “Who”
“Who” is English is કોણ(koN) in Gujarati
Like pronouns, when prepositions are used with કોણ(koN) its form changes.

With whom -> કોની સાથે ? (konI sAthe )
For whom ? -> કોને માટે ? (kone mATe )
Because of whom ? -> કોને કારણે (kone kAraNe )
Instead of whom -> કોને બદલે (kone badale )

2) Prepositions with “When”
“When” in English is ક્યારે(kyAre) in Gujarati. It changes to ક્યાર(kyAr) for using prepositions.
Only time related prepositions will be used with it.

From when -> ક્યાર થી (kyAra thI )
Till when -> ક્યાર સુધી (kyAra sudhI )

3) Prepositions with “Where”
“Where” in English is ક્યાં (kyAM ) in Gujarati. It remains same when using prepositions.
Only place related prepositions will be used with it.
From where -> ક્યાં થી (kyAM thI )
Till where -> ક્યાં સુધી (kyAM sudhI )

4) Prepositions with “What”
“What” in English is શું (shuM ) in Gujarati. Few prepositions can be used as follows :-
For what ? -> શા માટે ( shA mATe )
In what -> શેમાં (shemAM)
Of what -> શેની ( shenI )

5) For other WH-words it is not natural to use prepositions. Will add examples if I find good examples.
