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?

1 Answer 1


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, 2018 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, 2018 at 11:34
