    Default In/on newspaper, trible/treble merits

    Dear Teachers

    I am not sure which preposition (in/on) and word (trible/treble) should be used in the following sentence.

    1) The article is published in/on Daily Telegraph today.
    2) The writer talks about the trible/treble merits of investing in European equities.

    Please advise.

    Trible isn't a word. You're probably thinking of triple.
