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.

This relates to:
Y = There (adverbial pronoun) -

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 !
