    Arrrgghhh! That's the feeling I get reading how many wrong answers people are giving you. Please allow me to give you the right answers, and I'll prove they're right, because I'll explain.

    1. B. The prepositional phrase is "at the mall". Other answers include dependent clauses, but no specifically prepositional phrases.

    2. C. The main clause is "Dolly must clean up her room". This is what the sentence is about. "before she goes out" depends on the main clause, so it is the dependent clause. The first word in the clause is "before," a preposition.

    3. B. Amply, just because I know it. But, if you don't believe me, check out http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/amply

    4. C. The word "but" is a conjunction. Typically, the word "for" is a preposition, but in B it is being used as a synonym for "because," which is also a conjunction. In C, "for" is being used as a preposition.
