      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:

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

    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".
