en, and sin.
The Spanish preposition en is used to indicate location, amount of time
or money, proportion, and means, and is found in a few expressions and compound
Although normally prepositions are not used in front of direct objects, in
Spanish there is a special preposition called the personal a which precedes
direct objects that refer to people, personified nouns, and animals.

has essentially the same meaning as each.
