(1) AT vs. IN. We often use both “at” & “in” to talk about position or location.
“In” is usually used to talk about the position of someone or something inside large places such as countries, continents, big cities etc.
“At” is usually used to talk about the position of someone or something inside small and unimportant places such as villages, small towns etc.

(2) ALL vs. ALL OF. Use “all of” before pronouns (I, you, him, them, we, etc.). Use “all” in all other cases.

(3) IN vs. ON vs. AT (prepositions of time). Use “in” with general measurements and “on” or “at” for specific dates

(4) BESIDE vs. BESIDES. “Beside” is a preposition that means nearby. “Besides” is an adverb and a preposition that means in addition to.

(5) AMONG vs. BETWEEN. “Among” is used when the items are part of a group (3 or more). “Between” should be used only when there are two elements.

(6) ON vs. UPON. Both “on” and “upon” are interchangeable, although “upon” is a little more formal and old-fashioned.

(7) TO vs. THAN. Some words like “senior”, “junior”, “prefer”, “prior”, “superior”, “inferior”, “preferable”, etc. are followed by “to” and not “than.

(8) IN vs. INTO. Use "in" when you mean that a person, place, thing, or animal is located inside a location. Use "into" in the sense of coming toward something.

(9) FOR vs. SINCE. “For” measures time while “since” refers to a specific period.

(10) AGREE WITH vs. AGREE TO. “Agree with” is used for agreement with a person. “Agree to” is used for agreement to a plan / proposal / idea.
