What is Prepositional Phrase
A prepositional phrase is comprised of object of the preposition and preposition itself with the modifier. Prepositional phrases are exceptionally normal. They work as either modifiers (Adjective) or qualifiers (Adverb).

- Sammy is trapped in the tunnel. (Here, the prepositional phrase ” in the tunnel ” is functioning like an adverb because it is modifying the verb “is trapped.”)
