Questions about verbs with a preposition - colloquial
As with verbs without a preposition, you can ask for the prepositional addition. As with questions about an accusative or dative addition, a distinction is made between "things" and "people":
Example: Verb without a preposition
I see the man. - person – Whom do you see?
I see a tree. - Thing – What do you see?
Example: verb with preposition
I am waiting for the man. - person – On whom are you waiting?
I am waiting for the bus. - Thing – On what are you waiting?
However, the questions with the preposition + apply What (Example: on what?) as colloquial.
Questions about verbs with a preposition - in standard language
These questions are in the standard language with Where- plus preposition formed.
