    "Put off for 10 days" or "put off by 10 days"? Which one is correct, please?

    Also, "Postpone by 10 days" or "Postpone for 10 days"??

    Thanks!!!!

    I think so the use of FOR is better here.
    (ps a teacher would explain you in a much better way)

    "Put off for (a period of) 10 days". Does this help you to understand?
