Question

7. In which one of the following sentences is but used as a preposition? A. I wanted to leave, but I was embarrassed to do so. B. We discovered that Candy will do anything but work. C. I would like to return to Italy, but I have no money. D. The lake is pretty, but it's too cold for swimming.

2 Answer

  • B. We discovered that Candy will do anything but work.
  • The correct answer is B) We discovered that Candy will do anything but work - because here 'but' is used with the meaning of the preposition 'except for', whereas in the remaining examples it is used as a conjunction.
