What do you mean by the word "islmplied"? It is a miswriting?

I didn't learn anything today, why?

What's the difference between "wake up" and "stand up"?

Hi Rodrigo,


First, in, on and at.

In describes something that is inside another object or space. For example:

"My phone is IN my pocket." The phone is inside the pocket.

"I live IN the USA." I live within the USA.


On has to do with the space above something. For example:

"There is a book ON the desk." The book is resting on top of the desk.

"He has a hat on his head." A hat is on top of a mans head.

However, when talking about phones, if you are making a phone call, you are 'on the phone.'


And at. At can answer the question "where is it?" It describes location, similar to a position on a grid or chart.

For example:

"Where is the store?" "The store is at the corner of Central and fourth street."

"Where is Mike?" "He is at the park."


Ok, now let's look at "I really don't know," and "I don't really know." The sentences are different. To explain this, let's remove one word from each sentence and see what happens afterward.

"I really don't know." Let's remove really from the sentence.

"I don't know." These two sentences almost mean the same thing. In this case, really is expressing the honesty of the statement. It emphasizes and attaches to 'don't.'


"I don't really know." This time, we will remove the word 'don't.'

"I really know." This sentence mean that I know, or I know [it] very well.

When we add the word don't, it reverses the meaning. It becomes "I only know a little."


These were great questions!


Keep studying!

By the way, is it correct to write "I really don't know" or the sentence only admits "I don't really know"?

I really don't know when to use correctly the prepositions "in", "on" and "at". They seem to me interchangeable, so, I make a lot of mistakes.
