    We use at when referring to a specifc time. For example:

    • I met him at five o'clock.


    Or:

    • I met him at five o'clock on a Monday.


    (One down and sixteen to go. (Ron can't count.))

    :wink:

    It's a joke (and bad one). Tdol listed seven different prepositions, and I commented on one of them. (Actually, two.) That left six, but I said there were sixteen to go. Obviously, I can't count. :wink:

    Say: What does this mean?

    :)
