Look at this picture, a rat was at a distance from the ticket booth. The suddenly, the rat ran towards the booth and then sneaked under the booth.
The dictionary says
under (prep) in, to or through a position that is below something
Have you looked under the bed?
She placed the ladder under (= just lower than) the window.
The dog squeezed under the gate and ran into the road.
So, according to oxford dictionary, under: to a position that is below something
So, "The rat ran under the booth" can be replaced by "The rat ran to a position that is below the booth"
But saying that "The rat ran under the booth" may be confusing because people may think the rat just ran under the booth but not from a position outside the booth.
My question is
Do we say "The rat ran to and then under the ticket booth" or just "The rat ran under the ticket booth"?
