Using Prepositions

Some of these sentences have the wrong prepositions in them. Some sentences have a preposition that shouldn't be in the sentence at all. Some of them have an infinitive that shouldn't be there, and some are missing an infinitive that you need to put in. Read each sentence slowly to see if it's correct or not. Change or omit a word so that the sentence makes sense.
