what is the correct option when I want to sat that I'm waiting for someone ON / IN / AT second floor?

a) I'm waiting for you on the second floor.

b) I'm waiting for you in the second floor.

c) I'm waiting for you at the second floor.

  • While the "second floor" is an entire area, a floor is what you stand on. So use a). – user3169 Nov 3 '16 at 20:02

I'm waiting for you (at the lift, in the hallway) on the second floor.

Note the article "the" before second floor.


The short answer is "ON the floor", but here is the explanation:

Since we are stepping on the floor rather than inside ("in") the floor itself (probably it is something impossible), therefore we say "on the floor".
