My English teacher wouldn't like the way the question's worded now either. Remember that prepositions are a part of speech that you should never end a sentence with.

Um, guys… I hate to break up perfectly good prepositional banter, but I'm pretty sure that's not what Sean's jab was about. In Mal's objection to the preposition at the end of the sentence in the clue, he misused the contraction "Who's" when obviously the right word there is "Whose". Confucius say, "People who live in glass possessives shouldn't throw prepositions".
