    Your homework, on each day will be, solve in your notebook

    Hi teachers,Telling his student about homework for all days of a specific week (say the week from 21-8-17 to 26-8-17) a Maths teacher says to his student, "Your homework, on each day will be, solve in your notebook all the questions solved and explained in class on that day."We know that the preposition "on" can be omitted there. I want to know, would it be wrong if it is not omitted. Please help.

    Re: inclusion of preposition

    That's not wrong, but the first part needs some work. Can you see the issue there?

    I have changed your thread title. Titles should include some/all of the words/phrases you are querying.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please see my corrections above.

    No, the sentence is not wrong if you include "on". Both "that day" and "on that day" are correct in that context. You have used "on that day" twice. I wouldn't use "on" either time but that is simply my preference.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    thank you, I was asking about the preposition 'on' used before 'each day'. Grammar books say that 'on' is not used before ''each day'. I want to know, would it be wrong if 'on' is used before 'each day'.

    I answered that question clearly in post 5.

    Please tell us which grammar books say you must not use "on each day".
