I am confused which one of the below sentences is correct.

1.Mohan works in the Hotel as a waiter.

2.Mohan works as a waiter in the Hotel.

  • Both sentences are correct. There might be a slight difference in emphasis. – Gustavson Jun 15 '19 at 14:01
  • Gustavson, could you describe what is the emphasis. – Nazo Jun 16 '19 at 5:15
  • I meant to say, a difference in focus. I imagine that in sentence (1) the interlocutor might already know that Mohan works in the hotel, and the speaker places "as a waiter" in end position to clarify what he does at the hotel: Mohan works in the hotel as a waiter, not as a receptionist. By contrast, in sentence (2) the new information might be that he works as a waiter in the hotel, not in a bar. – Gustavson Jun 16 '19 at 14:54
