The original sentence:
"The movers are putting boxes on a truck and removing boxes from a truck."
To shorten the sentence, I want to combine these two actions:
"The movers are putting and removing boxes [ on / from ] the truck."
But I don't know whether to use the proposition associated with putting (on), or the preposition associated with removing (from).
AKA, which of these are right?
- The movers are putting and removing boxes on the truck.
- The movers are putting and removing boxes from the truck.
- The movers are removing and putting boxes on the truck.
- The movers are removing and putting boxes from the truck.
What are the rules in determining which preposition to use when combining other such sentences?
Clarification: I am not looking for different words for putting and removing. I am just trying to understand how I would combine both of those into one phrase when they use different prepositions 'towards' the object (truck).
