    Multiple choice option [for/since the last week]

    We have stayed in this hotel…….. the last week.

    a)from
    b)till
    c)for (Answer Key)
    d)since

    Hi,
    If it were "last week" without article "the" then could we use option "d" (since)?

    This is my estimation:

    Last week=specific point of time
    The last week=during or period of seven days

    Am I right?

    Thank you

    Yes, I agree with the keyed correct answer. If you remove "the" then D becomes correct.
