    Hi guys,

    I would like to know why the following sentence according to your Test: Prepositions of Time isn't correct.

    He was famous in the sixties.

    Thanks for your response.

    I don't know. It is correct.
    I just did the test and didn't get that question
    The proper answer may have been "during", but "in" is still right.

    But I am sure you will have shared the same opinion, as the two posters in that thread did.
