Which one is correct:
"A single shot to the head and the other one to the chest/ A single shot on the head and the other one on chest"
Why the preposition "on" doesn't work on this sentence?
Ask "Why doesn't the preposition..." not "Why the preposition doesn't..."
A shot to the... describe the direction or target of the shot.
You can have a wound on your head, your arm, your chest, etc.
Remember that many prepositions in English don't have a lot of logic to them. We just use them in certain ways because we do.
BTW, given the use of 'a single shot', I would say 'another' for the second if they are being mentioned for the first time, which does seem fairly likely; otherwise one...the other would be more natural. 'Single' also seems an odd choice when there were two shots, even in different parts of the body.
