Another topic you’ll always come across in PST past papers is prepositions.

  1. You always do your work __ time.
  1. In
  2. At
  3. On
  4. To

Explanation: ‘In’ is used to refer to specific parts of the day (e.g. in the morning) or months/years (e.g. in June, in 1994 etc.). ‘At’ is used for specific places on the clock (e.g. at seven o’clock). ‘On’ is used to refer to singular/specific times, such as ‘on Friday’. Since work has a certain deadline, therefore on is the appropriate preposition as it implies doing it exactly on that specified time of the deadline.

  1. I’ll be very careful __ the future.
  1. In
  2. For
  3. At
  4. By

Explanation: “In the future” refers to an unspecified time in the future. This means that whenever the event in question arises again, the person will be more careful. Hence, option ‘a’ is correct.
