    No preposition I can think of would form anything that really makes sense. What are you trying to express? – Jason Bassford Supports Monica Dec 7 '18 at 4:26
  • reach is a transitive verb; i.e. it takes a direct object. Perhaps you're confusing it with arrive? – Chappo Says SE Dudded Monica Dec 7 '18 at 4:43

  • I’ve voted to close this question for being unclear because on EL&U, you’re expected to provide the intended meaning when asking for this type of word request. Otherwise one could justify using just about any preposition or even no preposition. E.g. at, for, around, inside, outside, etc. – Lawrence Dec 7 '18 at 10:19
  • Looks like your teacher botched the question. – jimm101 Dec 7 '18 at 17:37

According to Collins Dictionary: 'To reach' is a transitive verb. It is used with the direct object. So there is no preposition. 'To reach' means to get to or get as far as in moving, going, traveling, etc.: The boat reached the shore.

    No, that's wrong. Reach certainly can take prepositions. Reach around, reach for, and so on. But while he reached around his house at night is syntactical, it has little meaning. – Jason Bassford Supports Monica Dec 7 '18 at 14:51

    @JasonBassford Depends how long his arms are (or how small his house). – Janus Bahs Jacquet Dec 7 '18 at 17:26
