    ...even the world...?

    Hi, I read in "Hot English Magazine" (#22, page 14)....."Perhaps one of the most popular and most highly respected talk show hosts in America, and possibly even the world, is Oprah Winfrey"....isn't better to say in the world instead? Thanks.

    The "in" isn't required as it has already been stated before the word "America". If you remove "and possibly" and change the sentence a little, you may see what I mean:

    "....one of the most highly respected talk show hosts in America, the world and probably the universe". You wouldn't repeat "in" each time there and similarly, there is no need for it in your paragraph.
