Why couldn't it be "the reporters at the school sit and wait"? It has a slightly different nuance but I can't see why this is marked wrong. Can one of you brilliant grammarians explain it in a way I can understand?
Ok two things: one, The should not be necessary, reporters should be right, and two, sit and wait at the school should be ok, so what was wrong with Reporters sit and wait at the school? Thanks. Is it the at rather than the by?
