Simon,
you must have looked at my essay.
I found you picked one mistake from my essay:
In comparison with office, home is a relatively quiet and comfortable place for work at.

I see most students here did not find the mistake:

In comparison with office, home is a relatively quieter and more comfortable place for work at.

or:

In comparison with office, home is a relatively more quiet and comfortable place for work at.

I found this mistake after my submitting, however, I couldn't modify it at that time.

Hi,Simon:
I don't understand why use 'in the same place' instead of 'at the same place' ?
I guess most of us can't find this error.

Hi Hench,

You can't say "I live at a place". You need to use "in".

Hi Simon,
Can I use "attach" to replace "place" in the sentence "employees tend to place less important on working..."

Thank you so much!
