Hi guys πŸ‘‹πŸ» Yesterday I posted a quiz where the correct answer was b) βœ”οΈ β€œTwo guards prevented the thief from stealing the car.” Let me explain to you why πŸ™ŒπŸ» πŸŒ€ TO PREVENT means to stop something from happening or someone from doing something. πŸ”ΊWe can prevent something (not let something happen). Examples: βœ… Let me explain once again to prevent confusion. βœ… I wish I could prevent that accident. βœ… He was taking antibiotics to prevent pneumonia. πŸ”Ί We can prevent something or someone FROM something. Examples: βœ… Heavy rain prevented the competition from happening. βœ… The police prevented the murderer from killing one more person. βœ… This treatment can prevent the disease from developing. πŸ”ΉπŸ”ΉπŸ”ΉπŸ”ΉπŸ”ΉπŸ”Ή So, have you memorized? PREVENT (someone/something) + FROM + V-ing ❌ He was prevented to come. - WRONG! βœ… He was prevented from coming. - CORRECT! πŸ”ΉπŸ”ΉπŸ”ΉπŸ”ΉπŸ”ΉπŸ”Ή I hope this post will PREVENT YOU FROM MAKING any mistakes with this word in the future πŸ˜‰ ❓ Is it clear?

    I'd like to ask can we use this verb in next sentences for example:"Coffee doesn't prevent me from sleeping "or Is it wrong?

    Can be only: two guards prevented the thief steal the car? Heavy rain prevented the competition happened?
