    Lightbulb The difference between every and each

    I applied as an English instructor in Bahrain Training Institute. And so I was given the chance to be interviewed yesterday by an educator from Bahrain. I was sad and confused about my answer to his question on the difference between every and each. The question sounded so easy but to be honest I was not satisfied with my answer. What is really the difference between every and each?

    Each person in the class has a chance. >> every person in the class considered individually. Each = individual

    Every person in the class has a chance >> all the people in the class as a group. Every = all

    Re: The difference between every and each

    Thank you for the information. As an additional query or clarification - Do I have to include the group in a sentence? I mean for example Every player in the team must cooperate. What about if I will just write Every player should cooperate? Will it be wrong?

    No, it would be fine.
