    within

    Can we use ''within' instead of ''during"?

    Within the 60s,70s, 80s and so on. Which one is frequently used "during" or "within"?

    The reason I'm askig almost the same guestion is that an acquaintance of mine, who's a very "sel-fassured" person, said to me that I was mistaken when I said during the 70's and that the only correct option was within,which of course I contradicted and tried to proove that she was being not completly accurate.

    We say "during the 60s,70s,80s etc. No native speaker of English would use "within" in that context.
