Q7 - She is _____ the front of the queue.
can you explain why the answer of the above question is "at" but not "in" . Thanks in advance
|<...the queue..........................front of the queue>
'in' expresses the situation of something that is or appears to be enclosed or surrounded by something else.
What is surrounding/enclosing the person who is 'front of the queue?
'at' : expressing location in a particular place or position.
Hence, one person is at the back of a queue - his general location; one person is at the front of a queue; and the others are in the queue (enclosed by the person immediately behind, and the person immediately ahead of him.)
I get it! Thank you!!!
