    1. He went to town

    2. He has go in town

    Which of the two sentences is correct.

    Thanks

    Default Re: use of "in" and "to" in the following sentence

    He went to town.
    He has gone to town.

    He is in town.


    With 'go', use 'to' for the destination. With 'be' use 'in'.
