    in/within... nice try--- analyse?

    I would have done it in less than/within 4 days. Are both correctly placed at that place in the sentence?

    Having an edge scored with indentations or scalloped. Scored here does mean 'surfaced' or 'shaped' or 'formed'?


    Here is a scenario for writing the following sentence: I started a discussion with a presumption. My friend tried to defy my presumption by stating an alternate possibility. Then comes my turn, and i said the following sentence:


    It is a nice try to analyse/in analysing that way.. What is the better choice?

    Of the following, which one is right? and why?
    a) The train left the station crowded and dirty.
    b) The train was crowded and dirty when it left the station.



    Do as you would be done by. What does this sentence mean?

    Thanks in advance for your help

    It is a nice try to analyse/in analysing that way.. What is the better choice? I think both will do but I would prefer: in analysing

    Of the following, which one is right? and why?
    a) The train left the station crowded and dirty.
    b) The train was crowded and dirty when it left the station. If you are trying to describe the condtion of the train (b) is correct. If it is the station (a) is OK
