    She kept banging ON/AT the door.

    This is not my homework.

    1:- She kept banging at the door.
    2:- She kept banging on the door.



    Thanks for replying.

    Note my correction to your punctuation and spacing above. You need a comma at both ends of "if both are correct". You also need to remember that we do not put a space before a comma but we do put a space after one. You need "the" before "same meaning".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's OK. It takes practice to get out of bad habits. Note my further corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
