à + a place?

I was under the impression that we replace "à + a place" with "y", but the quiz gives "Elle pose les tasses sur la table." So "y" can replace any preposition + a place? Thanks.

Bonjour J, Yes, y can replace any preposition* that indicates a place: à, sur, dans, chez. *Except de, which is replaced by en.

Thanks, Laura. I think I'm clear on this, but is there a reason you single out "à + a place" in the lesson? Thanks.

Good point, I'll pass this on to Aurélie so she can add some other examples.

Bonjour John ! The lesson has now been updated with new examples of cases with "sur, chez, dans". Merci et à bientôt !
