      He did it in five hours.

    In the first sentence, we are given a vague idea of when the activity took place. In the second sentence, we are told exactly how long the activity lasted.

    How did I do, Teach?

    :wink:

    Re: In\During

    I voted for either because both of them can be used as preposition to mean(( at some period of time)).

    Re: In\During

    It depends on speaker's condition.

    If the speaker worked all the summer, the answer is "during".

    If the speaker worked several hours or days, we use "in".
