Could you please tell me which sentence is true?
- I have to finish my report by seven o'clock.
- i have to finish my report until seven o'clock.
could you tell me the difference between "BY" "UNTIL"?
and the usage of them?
I deal with a lot of Brazilians and they use "until" like this frequently. So someone is teaching its use.
The incorrectcould be rephrased asI have to finish my report until seven o'clock
'I have until seven o'clock to finish my report'.
I'm sure there is some reason for the confusion. But:
"Company X has to supply a replacement part until December 10"
"Company X has to supply a replacement part by December 10"
really do mean different things!
