    through/during/in/for/from..to(till)

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me your opinion concerning the following sentences?

    1.0. It rained all night.
    1.1. It rained all through the night.
    1.2. It rained during the night.
    1.3. It rained in the small hours of the last night.
    1.4. It rained for a few minutes in the night.
    1.5. It rained from 2 to (till) 5 o’clock last night.

    Would you be kind to explain to me what is difference between the following three sentences?

    2.1. It has been raining all morning.
    2.2. It has been raining all night.
    2.3. It has been raining for two hours now.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Would you be kind to explain to me what is difference between the following three sentences? Apart from the time frames, no difference.

    2.1. It has been raining all morning.
    2.2. It has been raining all night.
    2.3. It has been raining for two hours now.

    Thank you for your efforts.
