Which one of the sentences given is correct and Why? "This is a cheque of $100". "This is a cheque for $100"
If you look in the dictionary, you can discover how each word is used. In the dictionary that I use, there are three usages that show why for makes sense as the right choice:
1) in consideration or payment of
2) in place of, instead of
3) in exchange for
A cheque is a piece of paper used instead of cash. It is a piece of paper given as payment. You can take it to the bank and exchange it for cash.
The dictionary is a wonderful resource!
