Dear teachers,

Q1:
Do I need to include another word of "borrowing" after to in the following sentence? Please advise again, thanks a million.
I prefer borrowing a book to (borrowing???)a video tape.

Q2:
I would like to have a rest. ( Is it correct?)

Q3:
There is no seats left. ( Is it correct?)

Many, many thanks again for helping, teachers!
