    The first one is definitely wrong. The second one is probably wrong.

    Hi,
    How about these ones?
    a) At what time of day ..?
    b) At what time of the day?

    I think of 'morning, afternoon, evening, and night' in the answer.

    If the answer is 'at night' is the same.

    Um, ... no. We normally ask questions to find out the answers. We don't ask them if we already know the answer.

    I assume that you are writing questions for a listening/reading comprehension again. Am I right? If so, I am going to guess that the piece says something like "She arrived home late at night" and you want to work out a question which will elicit that answer. Correct? If that is the case, then you can say "When did she arrive home?"

    - When did she arrive/get home?
    - She arrived/got home late at night.

    - What time did she arrive/get home?
    - We don't know what time but it was late at night.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
