    Default Re: correct sentence

    Hello Suma, welcome to UsingEnglish!

    I'll underline the part of the sentence that is incorrect:

    1. I have been trying to reach Raj through phone, in vain.

    Have a look at this Google search, and see if you can work out which preposition you should use:

    ??? the phone

    If you post your answer, I'll check it for you later.

    Bye,
    MrP
