    around/about

    Respected,
    please clarify this for me.

    what is the difference between "Around 10 O'clock and About 10 O'clock "
    similarly
    what is the difference between "Around 2 years/about 2 years/close to 2 years"?


    It would be better if you could give some some examples in this regard.
    Please correct me If i am wrong, I appreciate your help.
    Thanks in Advance.
    Regards
    Madhu

    Re: around/about

    About and around mean the same.
    But 'close to' refers to a little shortage in the said period.
