    Preposition "с" has different meanings that require different cases:
    1. "с" meaning "with": goes with instrumental/5th case (as already mentioned):
    с нашими друзьями
    2. "с" meaning "from" goes with genitive/2nd:
    Он упал с кровати. - He fell from the bed.
    3. "с" meaning comparison (as, like) requires accusative/4th:
    величиной с яблоко - as big/small as an apple
