Hi teachers,
Assuming that we know that the person who talks is Eva Hine.
'Three months ago this man–Alex Dinon– killed the President of our country. He’s a murderer–a dangerous man. Twenty-four hours ago he escaped from prison, and our new President wants him back in prison – today! Now! At once!’

When did Eva Hine say their President want Alex Dinon back in prison?
a) He wanted him back in prison, 'Today! Now At once!'.
b) He wanted him back in prison that day, then, at once.

Thanks in advance.

I would have just answered "Immediately!"

b) He wanted him back in prison that day, then, at once.

I'm not really sure about these two answers. I'd write:
She said he wanted him back in prison that same day, at once.

Hi Surfer,
Thank you for your correction Emotion: embarrassed and suggestions.Emotion: wink
Is it also possible to answer, 'She said he wanted him back in prison on that same day, at once.' instead of 'She said he wanted him back in prison that same day, at once.'

Hi TS Emotion: smile

Hmm.., I'm not really sure whether it's appropriate to use on there, as the day they were referring to was that same day.

For example, you may well say that you're visiting your friend on Thursday, but I never heared such an expression as 'I'm visiting my friend on today'

I'm not sure though, I'm really sorry TS Emotion: embarrassed .. I hope one of the teachers will reply to you.

Hi surfer,
Thank you for your reply. In this example of yours you are absolutely right; it sounds really awkward.Emotion: nodding
