Sentence: "Sorry, I couldn't reply you in/on time."
My question: What preposition would be correct to use in the sentence, in or on?
Regards and thanks.
"In time" seems to imply that there was a deadline; "on time" seems to imply "in a timely manner." Informally, either would do, although "reply to you sooner" avoids the problem and probably better expresses what you mean.
Sorry, I couldn't reply TO you in time."
Sorry, forgot to add "to". Thank you for replying.
Thanks. You saying I could say "I couldn't reply to you sooner"?
