    a meeting with the four of them

    1) I had a meeting with all of them.
    2) I had two meetings with all of them.
    Could these sentences be used if I had a/two one-to-one meeting(s) with each of them?

    3) I had a meeting with the four of them.

    4) I had two meetings with the four of them.
    Could these sentences be used if I had a/two one-to-one meeting(s) with each of them?

    Gratefully,
    Navi.

    Re: a meeting with the four of them

    All of your sentences suggest that you met with all of those people at the same time.

    I had four one-to-ones, each with a different member of staff/friend/teacher.

    If the arrangement is any more complicated than that, you would need to break it down clearly. "I had a meeting with Jane and John, then I had a meeting with Terry and Bob".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Not really- we'd use something like I met twice with each of them.

    Re: a meeting with the four of them

    navi, this question is almost identical to your two previous questions. Could you not have inferred the answer to this one from the answers to the other two?
