Will it be correct if I translate "It depends on the context" into "Это зависит от контекста"? I understand that always I have to use the preposition "от" rather than other prepositions (e.g. Это зависит от погода). Isn't it?

  • In spoken language you can simply say "нууу это завииисит…" with or without stretching out the vowels (to indicate the long ellipsis at the end) :) Mar 7, 2018 at 9:32

Зависит (verb) is used with the "fixed" preposition "от" followed by the genitive case - родительный падеж. Зависит от чего?

зависит от контекста, от погоды, от него.
