    If you are in an enclosed place and you are in a certain section, which preposition do you use?

    In or At.

    I'm in this section or I'm at this section.

    I still get confused with in and at.

    Thank you!

    Re: In/At

    It depends on the precise context.

    'He is in the upper circle of the theatre.'

    'I am at the booking office in the concert hall.'

    'She is in the ladies' room and I am at a souvenir stall.'
