Do not confuse!

·      Questions Где? Куда? Откуда? do not help you to figure out the case.

·      Prepositions По and К point to Dative case.

·      Prepositions В, На with questions Кого? Чего? (Genitive Case) are not used. These prepositions can be used with questions Кого? Что? (Accusative Case) or в Чём? в Ком? на Чём? на Ком? (Prepositional Case)

·      If in doubt of belonging question Кого? to Genitive or Accusative Case, substitute the noun with the magic word Мама, and see the ending of the word: Мамы - Genitive; Маму - Accusative.
