"Have you ever been to the US?" Why in this question is "to" instead of "in". What is the difference between that prepositions?

  • "To" is generally a preposition of direction. "In" is generally a preposition of location. The difference is simply asking whether you have traveled there, or been in there. – Andrew Feb 22 '18 at 17:42
  • @Andrew: That sounds like an answer I would upvote. – sharur Feb 22 '18 at 17:54
  • @sharur perhaps but the question is just basic grammar and should probably be closed, especially since it lacks any detail. – Andrew Feb 22 '18 at 18:15
