I did my English homework yesterday. There was an exercise with empty gaps between words. So there was a sentence "I prefer reading novels ... watching TV" I put word ''over" in the blank space. Today in my English lesson I and my classmates reviewed the exercise. When I read my sentence, my teacher immediately insisted that I was wrong and the only word that fits in there is "to." I already knew that "to" fits in the gap, but I was also confident about "over." I still don't believe that "over" doesn't fit and I want to prove my teacher was wrong. Could you help me or prove me that I was wrong? Thank you.
