Prepositions with time #2 (permalink) Tue May 16, 2006 6:24 am   Prepositions with time
 

The preposition "on" is used to indicate specific times. For example: on Monday 22nd and so on. Moreover there is a general rule of usage for the following prepositions:
At: a time: at 5, at night
On: a day: on Monday, on July 22nd
In: a month, year, etc: in April, in 1983, in the 21st century.

Hope, it's clear.
