    Wink At Around

    Dear Teacher,

    Some people write "The incident took place at around or about 4 pm". I am told when "at" used around or about won't come. But some write so. Please clear me.

    Thank you,
    Murli

    Re: At Around

    'at around or about' doesn't sound very good, but if you just used 'at around' or 'at about', it would be OK.

    When "at " used can "around" or "about" follow. Should it not be "at 4 pm" or "around 4 pm" or "about 4 pm".
