    Studying in the library is quieter than studying in the dorm.

    1. Studying in the library is quieter than studing in the dorm.
    2. Studying in the library is quieter than in the dorm.
    Are the above sentences acceptable?

    Re: Studying in the library is quieter than studying in the dorm.

    It isn't the studying that's quieter at the library. It's the surroundings. "Studying in the library is quieter than studing in the dorm" is a grammatical sentence, but it doesn't really make sense.
