    Re: ubiquitous

    I use ubiquitous to describe something that's found everywhere.

    KFC can be found in 109 of 195 countries, so it's not even close to being ubiquitous.

    Your second sentence makes no sense.

    "KFC is ubiquitous all over the USA." Would it make sence?

    NOT A TEACHER.

    No. You don't need "all over" if you're going to use that word.

    "KFC is ubiquitous in the USA."
