    Question At the times

    Dear teachers,

    Does this sentence read well?

    The pill should be taken at the times of 8 am, 11 am and 5 pm.
    The pill should be taken at the times t1, t2 and t3.
    (not defined)

    Many thanks.

    No. If you're giving the actual times, you don't need to say anything about "time" at all.

    One/two/three pill(s) should be taken at 8am, 11am and 5pm.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
