    "Later" = "After" in this case???

    "As will be discussed in the first chapter, the boundaries of the phase were set at the lower end by the onset of puberty and the advent of legal responsibilities and abilities in the early to mid-teens, and at the upper end by consummated marriage or its expectation IN THE LATER TEENS TO MID TWENTIES."


    In this text, the period "... in the LATER teens to mid twenties" is:


    A)Late teens (18,19) to mid twenties


    B)After teens (20, 21) to mid twenties


    On this case: Later teens= After teens??? Or Later teens = late teens??


    What age correspond with "late teens"?

    Re: "Later" = "After" in this case???

    Is wrong the use of word "LATER" in the text? Why the author used "LATER TEENS", instead "LATE TEENS"?? What age correspond with "late (or later) teens"?? 18 to 19? 16 to 17?

    'Later' than 'early' and 'middle'.

    No, it's not wrong. He could have said "late teens" or "later teens." Later teens = 18 or 19. Maybe 17.

    You have asked this question numerous times.
