    'within' means something happens at some point(s) of a certain period of time;
    'while' means something happens throughout the continuance of period of time

    produce verb
    product noun

    If 'within' means at the point of time, so what's about "within you remain"?

    And what will you fill this sentence:
    _ he was bathing, the doorbell rang.
    a) while
    b) within

    Within a space, of course.
    But your question I thought was related to juxtaposing time preps.

    b) is , a) is

    Hi, Belly,
    While he was bathing...
    within you remain looks odd to me. Could you give all the sentence, please?

    Additionally, within has boundaries; e.g., within the hour, within this room; i.e., within this time or space, whereas while means at the same time as doing something else; e.g., While he was bathing, the phone the rang.

    A product (noun) is something you buy; the term produce (noun) is often used for fruit(s) and vegetables; e.g., the produce section of the grocery store. To produce something is to make/manufacture it. It's a verb.

    Hope that helps.
