In / At a time
My question concerns the following sentence.
Can I replace "In a time" with "At a time" ?
In a time when so many spheres of life are being exposed to greater scrutiny, should we expect anything less?
Yes, we could. I'd say that 'in'refers to a longer period of timeand 'at' to this moment.
Good distinction. :wink:
