Prepositions before the infinitive.

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone could explain how and why prepositions are used before a verb in the infinitive in a sentence. An example would be fantastic.

Thank you :)

Are you talking about something like difficile à comprendre vs difficile de comprendre? You use à if you have a concrete subject like ce livre. If the subject is impersonal, then use de.
