Assunto:  Does it need one more preposition or not?
 
Mensagem:  After I wrote down the following sentence I could not help noticing it needed one more preposition at the end.

"You could compare living there with the fast-pace environment a mixer grinder subjects all the fruits and cereals that it gets its blades on."

Will the forum members tell me which one?

(Of course, you can reword the whole sentence to fit your needs or drastically rephrase it in order for the audience to promptly understand it. But do not do it now. Try to put the missing preposition there first.)


----------------------------
Hint: To. You subject something to a certain condition. Yes, some grammar manuals will not approve of ending a sentence with a preposition, some will. You can now rephrase the entire sentence in any way you see fit.
