  12. I. After having a wholehearted meal at lunch, Jonathan came into the room, fully dressed.
    II. After having a wholehearted meal at lunch, Jonathan came in to the room, fully dressed.
    III. After having a wholehearted meal at lunch, Jonathan came on to the room, fully dressed.
    Only I
    Only II
    Only III
    Both II and III
    None of the above
    Option A
    There is a difference in the usage of into and in to. The preposition “into” indicates movement. (For example: Lindsay walked into the office). While, “in to” is used in lots of situations because the individual words “to” and “in” are frequently used in other parts of a sentence. In case of sentence III, one cannot get on to a room as it does not make any sense in the sentence. Thus, option A is the correct answer.
