    (a) part of my job, till the end

    1. It's (a) part of my job. Should there be an article.
    2. She must carry out her work in a proper way till the end (I mean, to a full degree/comletely). Which variant is more appropriate here? If none of these, suggest your variant, please.
    Thank you!

    It is purely optional.

    2. She must carry out her work in a proper way till the end (I mean, to a full degree/completely). Which variant is more appropriate here? If none of these, suggest your variant, please. !

    Till (or til or until) the end works for me.

    The spelling "til" is objected to by many.

    What does it mean? I do not understand it.

    Re: (a) part of my job, till the end

    It means that you could write "till the end", "til the end", or "until the end". I pointed out that "til" is substandard.
