Are you aware that changing the prepositions you use in a sentence can change its whole meaning?

Prepositions are words that show the connection between a noun (or pronoun) and some other element in the sentence.

Take this example of a result (for example blood test) and a normal range for this patient:

  • The result is above the normal range
  • The result is under the normal range
  • The result is within the normal range

We’ve put together a quick quiz to help you understand how the use of prepositions with common medical verbs also changes the meaning of their sentence.
