PS Often (but not always) placement in the sentence will help you decide. Examples: ...a drink for Mr. Dussel ("for Mr. Dussel" is right next to "drink," a noun; it's also telling who will get that drink. That's why it's an adjective use of the ...

You're welcome. 4 - incorrect 5 - correct That's two incorrect answers for 4; please don't post about this again, but go back and read and re-read that webpage, especially where they explain the differences between adjective uses and adverb uses.

1 - 6 are all OK, but including "saying" in 2 an 4 is a bit awkward. 7 - "in" means "within."
March 29, 2016

English
Both sentences are fine. In both sentences, "after" means "later than." It's not really a substitute for "in," which implies "within."

"in" means ... 1. within 2 and 3. almost exactly an hour from now 4, 5, 7, and probably 8. within 6 and 8 don't really make much sense. 6 would make better sense if you wrote this: You are not allowed to stay here for a week (or during this week). (meaning that ...

Both sentences are fine. They seem to mean the same thing. The only difference between them is the prepositional phrase "with him" but it's rather redundant! However, depending on the context, the second sentence COULD mean that he stole an umbrella! The word &...
