  8. I live ____ Willow Lane.
  9. I live ____ 23 Willow Lane.

Note: by limiting the number of prepositions to three, the exercise turns out to be much easier for students. In case you want to make things harder, don’t tell them which prepositions they have to use, and mix this exercise together with other similar ones.
