  1. If she is behind you, then the best sentence would be "She is sitting in back of me. "
    "She is sitting in front of me."

    The use of "the" would not be correct there.

  2. Can't we use"She is sitting at the back of me".

    I could find the idiom, 'at the back of' in the dictionary.

    However, do yo mean in this case, the idiom is not used?
