1. I was poor in the past.
2. I am not so rich in the present/at present.
3. I will be rich in the future.
------------------------------
Are they all grammatical? Can we use both 'in the present' and 'at present'? How about 'at the present'? Which one is commonly used?

  1. All are fine, yes.

    And, yes, you can use any of those three phrases in #2. They're all fairly commonly used, although "at present" is probably most common.

  2. Thank you for your help.
    What about 'at the present'?

  3. "at the present" or "at present" -- both mean the same thing. But "at present" is the more commonly used between these two.
