A Review of Fine Tune Your English, Chapter 17: Mind Your Prepositions notes

 Chapter 17: Mind your Prepositions.
Let me begin with a sentence given in your text :
“the party started on time because the guests arrived in time”.
Here there are two prepositional phrases:
1) on time ,and
2) in Time.
It is  everybody's concern how to use prepositions ,especially with time expressions here “on”and “ in” are used with time .”On time” means at the right time, on the other hand ,”in time” means early enough and not late or within the limits of the prescribed time. so the sentence means the party could be conducted at the  right time because the guests had arrived early enough .
now let's go deep into each of the prepositions
