A dependent preposition is a preposition that always follows the same expression.

For example: 'depends on' or 'interested in'.

Dependent prepositions are important in IELTS because they are difficult to learn as there are no clear rules on how to use them. Therefore, if you can use them well, it means you have a good command of English.
