In this sentence, "for" should be "in" or "after", am I correct?
They finished the work for a week.
They finished work for a week.
...... and this is fine.
What it means is that they stopped working for a week, that is, they took a week's holiday.
They could have said , "They finished the work in a week" if they meant it took them a week to do it. They could also say, " The work was finished after a week" to mean the same.
