I've been studying the different structures between 'prefer' and 'rather'. I have a few questions.
- Can use 'to' after 'would prefer' like
I'd prefer you to stay at home tonight.
- Can I use the past tense after 'would prefer' like 'would rather'? If I can, are the meanings of these two sentences the same?
I'd rather you didn't go out. vs I'd prefer you didn't go out.
- Should I put 'that' after 'would prefer'?
