hi, what is the differece between "at the end", "in the end", "to the end" and "by the end". :)


Difference is due to the usage of prepositions:

1) At the end:
Example: I can see light at the end of the tunnel.
Example: The restrooms are at the end of the hall.

2) In the end:
Example: The hero killed the villian in the end.
Example: I laughed so much that I cried in the end.

3) To the end:
Example: I will go to the end of the world for you.
Example: I will make you read to the end of the story.

4) By the end:
Example: I want the reports by the end of day today.
Example: Catch it by the end of its tail.
