Do you usually say out 'at 4 pm' or 'at 4 in the evening/afternoon'?

Example,

I will meet you tomorrow at 4 pm/in the evening/in the afternoon

By the way, is 4 considered afternoon or evening?

'at 4 pm' or 'at 4 in the afternoon': both OK.

Absolutely not "at 4 in the evening."

I will meet you tomorrow at 4 pm.

4 pm is afternoon.

I'd usually just say 'at 4' (I think I can assume no-one would think I wanted to meet them at 4am).

'at 4 o'clock' is extremely common.

'at 4pm' and '4 in the afternoon' are ok, but don't sound quite as natural for conversation.
Thanks!
Hi guys,

We commonly just say 'I'll meet you tomorrow at 4'. If I say that, nobody is going to think I am suggesting that we meet at 4am. Almost everyone is asleep at that time.Emotion: big smile

But you would say "I'll meet you tomorrow at 8 in the morning/at night" to avoid confusion, am I right?
YEs you might need to say that to avoid confusion.

... at 8 in the morning (okay)

... at 8 in the evening
