    Re: чтобы

    If you mean that he let her have his chair - "Он уступил ей свой стул." But if it was a chair or "кресло" if it was an arm chair. The best way to say is "уступить место", because you can say " Он уступил ей место в трамвае, в троллейбусе, в партере, в президиуме, за рулём, у токарного станка."
