    six or seven years or so ago / six or seven years ago or so

    Hi,

    - That was six or seven years or so ago.
    - That was six or seven years ago or so.

    I have difficulty in determining where to put 'or so' in a sentence, so I tried to write such sentences. I think the second one is OK, but I am not sure of that.

    Thanks.

    Of the two I prefer the first one.

    I agree with bhai, but I like "about six or seven years ago" better.
