1. My father goes to work by car.
2. My father goes to work by his car.
3. My father goes to work in his car.

(Which one is grammatical?)

English - Jen, Tuesday, May 18, 2010 at 11:11pm
I would say "my father drives his car to work". 1 is probably the most acceptable of those choices though.

Thank you for your help.
I'd like to know whether the following expression is grammatical or not.

2. My father goes to work by his car.

  1. #s 1 and 3 are good; #1 is best.

    #2 is not correct. In this sentence, when you say "by his car," you are saying that he passes by his car on his way to work -- which doesn't make sense!
