    in and on

    Hi!

    I just would like to ask what is the difference and when do you use the following:

    1. Sit in a chair

    2. Sit on a chair

    I read in so many books they use "in" and not "on".

    Thanks!

    Some chairs look like you sit in them (deep armchairs), others like like you sit on them (stools). You can use whichever seems right at the time.
