    ON the one hand, or IN the one hand ?

    hi,
    I am honored to participate with you for the 1st time. I wish I learn from you teachers and from the students sharing.

    my question is: which is correct? , to say: 1. On the one hand,
    OR
    2. In the one hand,
    ?

    Thank you.

    It's both "on one hand" and "on the one hand". Though I wonder if there's difference? You usually follow up with "on the other hand"

    No difference at all.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    It can be used with both prepositions or it doesn't matter if we use it with the definite article or without it?

    Only "on" is correct. It's OK with or without the article.
