    3.1. There was ample time to get things done in.
    3.2. There was sufficient time to get things done in.
    3.3. There was enough time to get things done in

    I would delete 'in' at the end of the sentences.
    They would perhaps be better phrased like this:
    There was ample time in which to get things done.
