Hello all!


"It was just about highlighting the pros and cons of staying and studying at home vs leaving home and studying far from it."


By "it" I meant "home" - is that ok to use it here? Or either "far away" or "far from home would be the only correct ways of expressing the idea? In my opinion "it" is ok!

Thanks a lot!

Yes, the highlighted "it" clearly refers to "home" in your sentence.
