Hello to all,

Thanks for reading my post.


Sample sentences:

1. If Mr Barker was not doing that, he should have made way for someone younger and more enthusiastic, who was starting out <> their political career.

2. If Mr Barker was not doing that, he should have made way for someone younger and more enthusiastic, who was starting out <in> their political career.

3. If Mr Barker was not doing that, he should have made way for someone younger and more enthusiastic, who was starting out <on> their political career.

Question:

Is the part in angle brackets correct in all three sentences? It seems to me that yes. If so, is there any difference in meaning?


Thanks a lot for any comments, corrections or suggestions!

Regards,
JJXR
