Usage of Genitive case (singular) - part 1

The case system in Russian is a complex grammatical theme. But if you  understand the system and able to use it correctly, the Russian language will seem to become easy and very attractive.  ;) In total there are six cases in Russian:  Nominative (1), Genitive (2), Dative (3), Accusative (4), Instrumental (5), Prepositional (6).   And  in this post we will acquaint you with one of  the most frequently used - the Genitive case (2).

тащить - таскать

The verbs of motion   "тащить - таскать" refer to the movement of a heavy object, or an object that is difficult to move for some other reason. What other use cases are there in Russian?
