    belong in/to?

    category: In what category do Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln belong? (Quoted from TOEFL-iBT Advanced Vocabulary, edited by a Taiwanese teacher of English)

    Can I say: To what category do Thomas Jefferson and Abraham Lincoln belong?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: belong in/to?

    You always say something belongs to a category.
    I am not a teacher.
