On the usage of "prefer", I found the example from old thread as follows.


1. I prefer to watch TV rather than play basketball. (No "to" in front of "play"

2. I prefer to watch TV instead of playing basketball.

3. I prefer watching TV to playing basketball.

4. Cannot us "than" after "Prefer"
Eg. I prefer going to school than visiting uncle.(it's wrong)

Do you agree?

Thanks.
