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 ?

  • By the way: "what does it means" is not English. When you use do/does/did to form a question or a negative, the main verb always goes in the plain form: "what does it mean". – Colin Fine Nov 28 '15 at 11:10

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".

  • Thanks a bunch explained terrifically It clears my doubts – Deepanshuc Anand Nov 28 '15 at 7:56
