Prepositional phrases are made up of a preposition and what we call the object of the preposition.
The object of the preposition can be a noun, pronoun, gerund, or even a clause.
The objects of the preposition can also have modifiers to help describe it and give additional information.
Example: The ball is behind the white car.
