1. The student doesn't remember the role he was assigned.
2. The student doesn't remember the role he was assigned to.

Are both acceptable? Is one preferred over the other?

@perennialloner,
In my opinion, both are acceptable one's. I can't see any difference in these sentences.

@Richard B Phillips,
I'm not surprised you can't see a difference. You don't even know how to use the apostrophe correctly.

Do you see a difference?

What if I had said:

The student can't remember the role to which he was assigned.

Versus

The student can't remember the role he was assigned.

Is the second still preferable?

@perennialloner,
Yes, less words same meaning. As a rule of thumb less is more.

@dalehileman,
I have taken issue with you on one thing you do on here. I'm not going into it because that dead horse is well and truly flogged. I still stand by what I've said. On everything else I don't have a problem. and if I think you're right I'll say so.

I'm quite blunt, and sometimes downright rude, but I don't pretend.
