    impression

    Hi there,

    1. Reports meet the needs of their readers, answering the questions in their minds.
    2. Reports meet the needs of their readers, answering the questions on their minds.
    3. Reports meet the needs of their readers, answering the questions in their heads.
    Any difference between ‘in their minds’ and ‘on their minds’?




    many thanks

    The only correct one is #2. thoughts or questions are always "on" your mind. I would also start the sentence with "The" as you are talking about specific reports here.

    Hi there,
    No, I don't think so. In British English, 'in one's mind' and 'in one's head' are acceptable.

    Yup, I agree. I think ¨In one´s head/mind¨ is also acceptable... ^^

    HI there,
    So can anyone tell the difference between 'in one's mind' and 'on one's mind' in the examples?
