    in his house and out of it

    Are these sentences both correct:

    1-He behaved strangely in the classroom and out of it.

    2-He behaved strangely in the classroom and out.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: in his house and out of it

    2's odd- both inside and outside might work.

    Re: in his house and out of it

    Thank you very much Tdol,

    So both of these will work:

    2a-He behaved strangely inside the classroom and outside.
    2b-He behaved strangely in the classroom and outside.

    I am unsure about 2b.

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    It's OK IMO- not great, though.
