    go to/through

    Make a sentence using these words:
    There be/ no need/ you/ go/ all that trouble.

    Answer key: "There is no need for you to go to all that trouble"
    My answer: "There is no need for you to go through all that trouble"

    Is my answer also correct? If it's not then what is the difference between "go to" and "go through" in this case?

    Re: go to/through

    It's not a case of a difference between them. The standard phrase for making some extra effort is "to go to any/all that/so much trouble". We just don't use "go through" in that context.
