    Cool Are "once" and "when" interchangeable in this context?

    (a) M: How long will it take us to drive to your brotherís house?
    (b) W: weíre out of the city, itís about 120 kilometers.

    IF NOT, what is the difference between them?

    (Thanks in advnace.)

    Welcome to the forum.

    I can't see 'once' or 'when' anywhere in that conversation.

    If they're supposed to be the first word of W's reply, neither of them answers M's question.
