    Red face power obsession

    Hi,

    thanks for all the responses, they were such a help.

    I had forgotton to ask one more thing in my earlier question about power/light.
    actually power outage is very common in the part of world I live
    so, the obsession.
    what would be the opposite of 'power's gone off'
    'power's out'
    like, if somebody asks
    do you have power at your home? (plz correct)
    yes, its still coming.(plz correct)
    it's still in(plz correct)

    Thanks
    Humayun Manzer

    Why not? The question is correct, but the answers don't work. We use 'on' not 'in'.
