No. 1

M: The meeting begins at four o'clock this afternoon.

F: You have an hour and a half to get ready.

M: But I need [ have ] to finish this report half an hour before

the meeting.

No. 2

M: Mom, I was given this present at school today.

F: It's beautifully wrapped! She must like you so much [ a lot ].

Who gave it to you?

Thank you, Mister Micawber. May I ask a few questions?

M: The meeting begins at four this afternoon.

Don't you usually use "o'clock"? In what situation do you use "o'clock"?

F: It's beautifully wrapped! They must like you a lot.

I meant the boy's girlfriend gave the present to him.

So he wanted it to be a secret. Is this strange?

Thank you in advance. kenta
1-- We don't usually include 'o'clock' in casual conversation.
2-- The mother asks 'Who?' so she doesn't know the sex of the giver.
OK. I understand. Thank you very much.
