    In sentence, the underlined word, which is "down", is a preposition. In sentence D. ("Place the refuse down the garbage chute"), "down" is a preposition because it is followed by a noun ("the garbage chute").

    C is. The others are adverbs, answering the question "where" or "in which direction. Prepositions introduce a phrase with a noun, and often an article or modifier.

    in "down the chute", "chute" is the object of the preposition "down".
