    end in/ end by[with]

    Hello there!

    Would you tell me the difference in the usage or nuance or whatever between "end in" and "end by[with]"?

    Thanks!

    "End in" is more likely to refer to duration, while "end by" is more likely to refer to a specific time.

    end in:
    • It is going to end in seven days.


    end by
    • It is going to end by Friday.


    :)
