    in, on, at?

    Please, could you shed some light on this?

    I want to find out a way to know (of knowing?) which names (who) are working ___ (specific) time.

    in, at, on?

    my guess:

    I want to find out a way to know who are working in a specific time!


    Thanks

    I want to find a way of knowing who is working at a specific time.

    one more question:

    a way to know
    a way of knowing

    The only way to travel to Africa
    Design Squad is a powerful way of introducing students to the engineering process.

    What's the difference?

    Thank you!

    Dear marciobarbalho:

    They mean essentially the same thing. I'm sure people may choose one over the other for reasons of style/shades of meaning, but I can't authoritatively differentiate them.
