(3) The people upstairs made a lot of noise all of last night.

Which one is correct? Thank you for your help.




In the sentence (1) the usage 'all night yesterday' is irregular.

Of course the sentence (2) seems to mean the same, but it is irregular to use the term 'night' twice - 'all night last night'

Only (3) is correct.

Topic: from the date of your receipt or from the date you receive them

Technically both the sentences are valid and mean nearly the same. However, there is a subtle difference between them:

The FreeDictionary lists the following meanings:

Quote:
re·ceipt (rĭ-sēt′)
n.
1.
a. The act of receiving: We are in receipt of your letter.
b. The fact of being or having been received: They denied receipt of the shipment.
2. often receipts A quantity or amount received: cash receipts.
3. A written acknowledgment that a specified article, sum of money, or shipment of merchandise has been received.
4. A recipe.


Quote:
(1) The coupon is valid for two months from the date of your receipt.

If the meaning '1' is considered, then the two sentences essentially mean the same.

If the meaning '3' is considered, and there being a possibility of the date of issue of the physical 'receipt' (for whatever payments made) issued could be different from the date the coupon is received (/collected) by the customer. In such a case, the sentence (2) can allow a longer validity (assuming that the payment was made and the 'physical receipt' obtained on a certain day, but the 'coupon' itself was collected (received) a few days hence).

After all, this may not be as ironic as it sounds. For ages UAE is male-dominated, and it is only recently the effort to bring in 'Gender Equality' has started. As such, only personnel who are in authority to implement 'Gender Equality' or work towards it are capable of earning the rewards.

Topic: The open air, the woods, on the beach

Many interpretations are possible, but the simplest few are :

Open air = Outdoors (outside of walled enclosures)
Woods = In the middle of many trees / forest
Beach = Sea Shore
Fields = Outdoors, particularly plain (or level) areas, which could be just flat ground or even cultivated regions
Rocks = Hilly regions

I am sure our senior and erudite members will provide more interpretations.
