Her son climbed to a branch in the tree and sat on it.Dear all,
Her son climbed to a branch (in / of) the tree and sat on it.
I made up the sentence. Which preposition would you use, 'in' or 'of'?
I would appreciate any comments.
This implies that somebody bored a huge hole into a branch so that this fellow could climb inside it. A squirrel might find a hole to fit in, but I doubt that a human could.I would say: "Her son climbed up into a branch and sat on it." (it's clear that we are talking about a tree, then it's no need to use the word tree)
