    (regarding prepostion) He threw a stone "at/on" the cow.

    This is not my homework.

    Kindly tell me which preposition in the given sentence is correct or are they both correct?


    Thank you in advance.

    If he was trying to hit the cow with a stone, then he threw the stone at the cow.
