    up/over

    Hello!

    I'm sorry you have no more time.
    I'm sorry your time's ...........

    What is the suitable word to put into the blank?

    I guess the word is 'up'.
    However I can't really explain why 'over' is not appropriate here.
    Or is it also possible?

    Please help me.
    Thank you in advance!

    Re: up/over

    As a guess, "over" would be used if you are talking about events: The lesson is over. "Up" would go with "time": Time is up.
