No, both people are "in" the car. "On" the car would refer to sitting on the hood, or the trunk, or the roof.
Student or Learner
does "on a car" means the subject is a passenger and while "in a car" means the subject is driving/driver of the car?
I have some trouble using prepositions, help please?
Thank you so much Mike
Some of these prepositions don't make a lot of sense.
We are in a car, but on a bus. We are on a boat and a motorcylce, but in a golf cart. We are "in" a small boat but "on" a cruise liner.
German has some tricky ones too.
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.
