    any time

    A: Hurry up, we need to catch the train at 3p.m. Are you able to leave now?
    B: Sure, I can leave at any time.

    I am not sure if B can say "Sure, I can leave any time." without the preposition "at". Could any one let me know?
    Thank you!

    Re: any time

    You can, and it sounds and means the same, but in writing, you have to use the single-word adverb 'anytime'.
