The original sentence is "The Spaniards brought horses to the Americas." I recently have made a final-term test question like this: Q: Where did the Spaniards brought horses? A: ______________________________________(Make sure to use the 'it-cleft')
Not a few students answered like this: "It was the Americas that the Spaniards brought horses to."
But, I think that only "to the Americas" is a right answer. Does the preposition 'to' need to be next to the noun? So, Separating 'to' and 'the Americas' seems to be awkward.
What do you think about it? I'd really appreciate it if you could help me...
