    Help me clarify

    I have two questions:

    1)
    "Mr.A is out of town and won't be in the office until Thursday."
    Dose this mean Mr. A will be in the office on Thursday or Friday?

    2)
    "You have until Friday to do it."
    This means whatever "it" is, you have to finish "it" by the end of Thursday night or before Friday ends?

    Hope someone can help me, thank you.

    1. Mr. A will be in the office sometime on Thursday.
    2. You have to finish it on or before Friday. It's ok if you finish it on Friday, but no later.
