    prepositions

    Hi! I wonder which preposition I can use " In" or "At" in this example:
    There are many dangerous situations in the school, in the street and at home
    There are many dangerous situations at school, at the street , at home
    please answer me and point to any site that can help me use diffrent other prepositions.
    Thanks.

    Re: prepositions

    Only one of your examples is incorrect, namely at the street. At the street is unusual but possible in some contexts, just not here.
