Today ,while reading news paper I came across the sentence "she had gone shopping earlier in the day " ....what does it mean ......? My conjecture "yesterday ?
she had gone shopping earlier in the day " ....what does it means ......? My conjecture "yesterday ?
Your conjecture is incorrect - "earlier in the day" means just that - if it's say 2:00 pm, then anytime between about 8:00 am and 1:00 pm on the same day would be considered "earlier in the day".
