    use "for" in a sentence

    Hello. Could you help me with the following sentence?
    "Every guest sat on the chair to which it has a shorter distance for playing the game."
    Is the sentence correct? Is the phrase "for playing the game" in the right place? and Where can I use this phrase in the sentence, alternatively?

    Is it part of your homework to include the phrase 'for playing the game' in a sentence?

    No. It's just an example. I want to know how make a sentence using "for"? and where is the place of phrase "for ..." in a sentence that has "which .......".

    Your phrase, "for playing the game" is in the right place, however, "...to which it has a shorter distance" does not make sense.

    Also, it should be, "a chair", not "the chair".

    If I take a guess at the middle part, your sentence might be:

    "Every guest sat in a chair that was just the right height for playing the game".
