    Smile Prepositions

    Dear Teacher,

    Grateful if you could advise on the use of prepositions in the following sentences:

    Details of the project would be discussed on/at/in the meeting of/on 20.10.2008 arranged by NW University.

    The meeting will be held on 20.10.2008 at 2:30 p.m. at/in the Conference Room of NW Unversity.

    Also grateful for your advice on the proper use of these prepositions on different occasions. Thank you in advance for your advice!

    Regards,
    Ily

    Re: Prepositions

    Dear David,

    Thank you for your advice. My boss, however, had amended the sentences to read as follows:

    Details of the project will be discussed on the meeting of 20.10.2008, arranged by NW University.

    The meeting will be held on 20.10.2008 at 2:30 p.m. at the Conference Room, of(omit) NW University.

    Would you teach me how to tell him that he is not using the right prepositions?

    Thanks again for your assistance,

    Regards,
    Ily
