    perpositions

    HI

    These are perposition rules

    at = a piont or place

    on = a surface

    in = an area or space

    I have some questions about the perpositions

    1- I read a story entitled "reading on the farm" and another story "reading in the park" they are all areas why do they differ?.

    2- what shall I say if someone asked me where do I work

    I work at/in mcdonald's.



    I will be so grateful if someone answeres this question.

    With prepositions the only "rule" is that there are no rules. What you posted is fine as a guide but it's not a rule.

    You work at McDonalds or in a McDonalds.

    on the surface of the farm=on the farm
    in the middle of the park=in the park, not outside the park
