  2. GuruBlue

    I beg to differ... one of the definitions for "before" being used as a preposition is "previous in time" . "Before seven" would meet that criteria...... I think

  3. Writeacher

    Aha! I see it again -- there are two C's here!!

    So, Jiya -- which is it? And adverb or a preposition??

  4. JIYA

    My mistake.Iwas leaning towards the first C .Preposition

  5. Writeacher

    Preposition is correct, as GuruBlue said, yes.
