I have a question about the task 1, question 6/7...
Question = What time does the film starts?
Correct answer = Does anyone know what time the film starts?

Would be possible to answer using prepositions : Does anyone know at what time the film starts?

Any link to the use of prepositions, begining, middle, end of the phrase mainly in questions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hello Mayela,

Although your formulation of the question is perfectly comprehensible, the preposition 'at' isn't used in questions about times (which is different from Spanish).

Most of the time, and especially in informal, the preposition comes at the end of a question; in formal writing or speaking, the preposition comes at the beginning (like in Spanish). You can see some more examples of this on our questions page.
