    Question in

    we say; the sun rises in the east.
    why don't we use word 'from' instead of 'in'?

    Please remember to start every sentence with a capital letter.

    It rises in the east but then it travels from east to west. (Of course, the sun doesn't travel anywhere, but then nor does it "rise". It stays exactly where it is and we move!)

    Welcome to the forum, kuku.

    Please give future threads more meaningful titles. We don't charge you by the word.

    A good title for this one would have been The sun rises in the east.
