  1. I would like to have fewer classes on Friday than on any other day.
  2. I would like to have fewer classes on Friday than any other day.

Is it redundant to use "on" twice?

In fact, the first sentence "I would like to have fewer classes on Friday than on any other day." is better. It is ok to use "on" twice. The second sentence "I would like to have fewer classes on Friday than any other day." sounds strange, so we don't usually say that.

BTW, it should be: I would like to have fewer classes on Friday than any other day"s"

Hope this helps!!!

  • No, I don't think it should be. More importantly: can you explain why you suggest what you suggest?

  • We usually use the preposition "on" before days, such as Monday, Tuesday, or Sunday. Of course, it's still ok to use the second one, but the first sentence is obviously better.

  • I'd say on-deletion here is more prevalent in the States than in the UK. Even the first one is a candidate for deletion. And perhaps deleting or keeping both gives better balance. Jan 10 at 16:04
