    In or On

    Hi, I need to know when it is best to use "in" or "on" in reference to a chair. Do you always say, "I sit in a chair," or does it depend on whether the chair has arms or not? My feeling is, if the chair has arms, it is "in", and although a couch does not have arms, because it is large, you say "on." Am I right or wrong or neither? Thank you.

    That is exactly how I choose between in and on for this situation.
