When can I use "in" and when "into" stoppage time? I do not understand what makes them difference in meaning.

It remained tied until the controversial events one minute into stoppage time.
Lecce score from a set piece deep in stoppage time to claim a point against Milan.
Topic: Apostrophe for common noun

What about a thing or things owned by two or more persons? Are the below the correct way to use apostrophe?

Mary and his car is expensive. (Here I want to mean only one car belongs to two persons)
Mary's and his cars are expensive (Here I want to mean Mary's car and his car - two cars)

How can I use apostrophe with possessive pronouns when the object or objects are owned by two people?

I would like to know if all the forms below are correct with the apostrophe.

actress's dress
actresses' dresses (multiple dresses belong or are used by many actresses randomly or each actress has its own dress)
actresses' dress (I want to mean one dress belongs to or is used by many actresses)

Also I want to know if the below is correct.

actress' shirt (if a singular noun ending in s is followed by a word beginning with s, use only the apostrophe, not 's)

And what makes different if we use past tense in both clauses?

No composer was considered worthy of the name until he wrote an opera.

So what is the main difference between until now and up to?

With "until" one action or clause should be happening first and then the other.

1. Danny had never seen a real cow till I showed him one last Friday.

- The first action that happens is: Danny had never seen a real cow.
- And then the second action that follows is: I showed him one last Friday.

2. No composer was considered worthy of the name until he had written an opera.
- Which one is the first action and which one is the second? Either both happen somehow at the same time or one starts or ends before the other. And why?

What is the difference between the below sentences?

Up to now they've had very little money. (Do they have more money after now or they still have very little money after now?)
Until now they've had very little money.

I have thirty years of accident-free driving until now. (Do I have accident driving after thirty years or I still have accident-free driving after thirty years?
I have thirty years of accident-free driving up to now.


What is the difference between the below sentences?

What about this sentence?

Jane is in London. She’ll be back by Saturday.

Does it mean that she will be back on Friday (at any time) or she can also be back on Saturday (at any time, ex. 11 pm), but no later than Saturday?
