    Lightbulb Just the difference

    Can you please show me the defference between these two sentences :
    Body water looses throught perspiration and urine
    Body water looses in perspiration and urine
    I think they are the same but the two words "in" and" through" make me confused
    Thanks

    "The body loses water through perspiration and urination."
    Neither sentence you have makes any sense. Especially if using the word "in".

    So you mean it's wrong if we use "in" ?

    Default Re: Just the difference

    You should use 'through' and the verbs is 'loses' not 'looses'.

    Bigbugforeveryone, I thought of this:

    "Body water is lost through perspiration and urination."
    That`s closer to what you were trying to say. And you still cannot use "in".
