    Unhappy Time indication

    I have some doubts regarding time indication. "Come inside the lab on 1.00 PM" ? or "Come inside the lab at 1.00 o'clock"

    Please guide me regarding this

    Re: Time indication

    Welcome to the forums.

    At is used with noon, night, midnight, and with the time of day

    "Come to the labs at 1.00 pm."

    "I expect to see you in the labs at 1.00pm."

    "The lecture starts at 2.00pm."

    "I will meet you in the labs at midday."

    mahesh877,

    Perhaps the following correct examples will help you:

    * Come inside the lab at 1:00 PM on Monday.
    * Come inside the lab at 1 o'clock on Monday.

    I would prefer to say: Come into the lab at 1:00 PM on Monday.

    Off the top of my head, I can't think of any sentence that would ever correctly use ON 1:00 PM.

    If these examples don't help you, I will see you inside this forum later today!
