Phrasal verbs: A question from Mabel

Hi, I hope you’re having a good day. I would like you to explain a little bit about the prepositions that are used in English after some verbs. For example: “The building burned down.”
I mean why I can’t simply say: “The building burned.”
There is not very much difference, Mabel. They are very similar.
‘down’ = completion – ” It burned down to the ground.” Completion or extension.
There are no fixed rules for prepositions.
Another example is:
“If you have a printer, you can print it off.”
“If you have a printer you can print it.”
‘Print’ is more general. ‘Print off’ or ‘print out’ of the computer.
