    Default Sorry for wanting help again on the usage of " I prefer

    Dear teachers,

    Q1:
    Do I need to include another word of "borrowing" after to in the following sentence? Please advise again, thanks a million.
    I prefer borrowing a book to (borrowing???)a video tape.

    Q2:
    I would like to have a rest. ( Is it correct?)

    Q3:
    There is no seats left. ( Is it correct?)

    Many, many thanks again for helping, teachers!

    You could also say, simply, "I want to rest."
