    alone

    1. I was on my own in the office.
    2. I was by myself in the office.
    3. I was alone in the office.
    4. No one was with me in the office.
    5. There was no one in the office but me only.

    I want to say none of my colleagues was in the office but me only.

    A. Are the above sentences correct? (including the one in black)
    B. What are the differences between the above sentences? (from 1 to 4)
