    Ah. Good. Try Raymond Murphy's books (the "Essential Grammar in Use" series). You can buy them quite cheaply online and you will learn a lot more!

    So that other people can avoid the book you have been using, can you please tell us the name and the author?

    In BrE, it's quarter past midnight. In AmE, it's a quarter after twelve (midnight?). Is it actual "White Night" there? The night where all the museums etc stay open all night?

    So - what is the name of the book you were using?

    I like Raymond Murphy's books. I have them. But I like this bad book too.

    Please don't. You have been advised by several people on this forum that it is not a good book to study from. If you keep posting bad questions which are clearly from that book, you will find that we simply won't respond.

    I find it rather disappointing that I have now asked you twice for the name and the author of that book and you have chosen not to divulge the information. That is rather odd. I don't think this thread is serving any further purpose so I am closing it.
