1. Adjectives with prepositions
There are many adjectives that are followed by prepositions and there's no rule to know which preposition goes with an adjective, therefore, they should be learnt together.
The streets are crowded with people.
He is afraid of snakes.
2. Some of the most common adjectives with prepositions
As we said before, we should learn both the adjective and its corresponding preposition together, so here are some of the most common ones.
Angry with (someone)
Angry about (something)
Sorry about (something)
Sorry for (someone)
When the complement following an adjective is a verb, this is used in the gerund (-ing).
He's interested in dancing.
I'm good at painting.
