    end up with/in

    If you keep pressing this button, you will end up with a blank screen.
    If you keep pressing this button, you will end up in a blank screen.

    What's the difference?
    When should I use in or with?
    If I make any mistakes in English, please let me know!

    Re: end up with/in

    Definitely not "in", in this context. You can't be "in a screen". Well, not unless you're in a science-fiction film. I'd use "with" or maybe "at".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It the proceeds from the auctions are greatly affected upon theintroduction of the Scheme at the end of this year, it may end up in a loss ofrevenue, instead of raising additional revenue.
    How about this sentence, can I use "with"?

    There's a problem with the parts I have marked in red above. Once you've fixed those, please tell us where you might use "with" in the sentence.

    Re: end up with/in

    The proceeds seemed to have dropped a little in the recent auction. It the proceeds from the auctions are greatly affected upon the
    introduction of the Scheme at the end of this year, it may end up in a loss of revenue, instead of raising additional revenue.

    Can I use 'end up with'?
