I am a bit confused that how to place the preposition "for".

  1. I took some apples for you from India.

  2. I took some apples from India for you.

The placement of "for you" is correct in which sentences?


As an English speaker, both are grammatically correct and it doesn't matter where you put the "for" but the second one sounds nicer.

  • Thanks D manokhin, 1. I got some Books from India by a Plane for you and 2.I got some Books from India for you by a Plane. these sentence is also correct as describe above. Nov 26 '18 at 11:12
  • @D Manokhin Your sentence sounds strange. It would sound more idiomatic if it read: I brought some apples for you from India instead of I took.... And your follow up sentences are not idiomatic: We say by plane, not by a plane. Although it's grammatically correct to say :**I got some books....**, it would sound more natural to say: I brought some books...." The phrase **for you fits in several places. Nov 26 '18 at 11:34
