    put

    Put somebody to risk
    Put somebody at risk

    Which one is correct?
    I think "put somebody at risk" is correct because I see this phrase all the time. But the model answer of my textbook says it's wrong.

    Could anyone please help me out?

    Thank you in advance!!

    Yes. It was probably half-inched, too. ;)
