    Thursday evening / nights


    I'm wondering if I can use the word 'evening' in the sentence below.

    -Would you like to go somewhere tomorrow night?
    - I can't. I always do yoga on Thursady evening.

    Students can choose between 'evening' and 'nights', and the key gives the latter as the correct anwer.
    A couple of days ago I asked about time expressions in one of the threads here; I was told I could use either pattern (e.g. in the evening/in the evenings) to talk about evenings in general.
    Does that mean the exercise allows two possible answers?

    Thank you.

    Thursday evening.
    Thursday night.
    Thursday evenings.
    Thursday nights.
    All four are interchangeable in your context.
