    What would you put in there? part2

    Hello, everyone!

    He is known ........... the world .......... a musician.

    What preposition has come to your mind to put into each blank?

    I think....
    'He is known to the world as a musician.' is the best, but...

    I've come up with two possible sentences.
    Could you please check these below to see if they're all OK?

    a. He is known around the world as a musician.
    b. He is known in the world as a musician.

    Or...should they be rephrased like...

    a'. He is known as a musician (all) around the world.
    b'. He is known as a musician in the world.

    Thank you in advance!

    To be honest with you, I think you've already come up with the best answer.
    The other options seem to be fine as well. Let's wait and see what others might like to say about it.

    If you replace "in" with "throughout", those two sentences would also be fine.
