    Smile Preposition in front of page

    It would be appreciatd if one could check the following:

    A. In the second paragraph on page 3 in Section 2, we emphasized ~

    B. In the second paragraph at page 3 in Section 2, we emphasized ~


    I am confused about the preposition in front of 'page'. Are both sentences are correct? Thanks.

    "At" sounds unnatural to me, although I would not say it is completely incorrect.

    I think “on” or “of” are definitely better.
