Fill in the right word. Bread is usually made ______ wheat. 1) of 2) from 3) with 4) by


2) from

would be the correct answer


"Make of" means that the material is just changed its form

For example: This shirt is made of cotton. This house is made of bricks.

"Make of" means that the material has gone through a process of changing.

In this case, the material 'wheat' has gone through the process of baking -> turn into bread.


The correct preposition in the sentence is "from", not "of".

When you make bread, the material wheat changes its form completely in such a way that it's no more wheat or, in other words, you cannot see it. In this case you use the "from".

On the other hand, if the material used in making an object doesn't change its form completely or you can still recognize the material, you use the preposition "of". For example:

This table is made of wood.
