Are the prepositions "in" and "for" in the following sentences interchangeable? Is there any difference in their respective meanings?
1) The children looked like they have not eaten IN days.
2) The children looked like they have not eaten FOR days.
Thank you for teaching me :)
Why is the use of "have not" incorrect?
After 'looked like' you need 'had'.
It would be correct to say 'The children look like they have not eaten for days.'
