    Red face Re: In or On

    Isn't English fun.
    There is no real logic to this, but we do something at the time, in a part of the day, on the day.
    E.G. "I will have a picnic AT 4 o'clock IN the afternoon ON Saturday."
    Perfectly clear.
    And for your last question - you could use either and it would be correct, although we would usually say AT the office for the example you gave, which is the general form meaning any office, and implies a similar meaning to AT work.
    If you were talking about a specific office you would probably use IN. "I use the internet IN my office" (so long as no-one is watching !!)
    Cheers

    Re: In or On

    for question one, I saw some people use 'on' instead of 'in'.
    I have learnt to use 'in' for MONTH (in March, April, May and etc), however, is it correct to use 'on' too?


    Is it correct to ask someone 'do you have a pet?' Or it is better to say 'Do you have pets?'

    I think "Do you have pets?" is better one and I just judged it by my own feelings.
