"In" or "At The End" in the English grammar

Which One Should Be Used?

'At the end' and 'in the end' are both correct but differ in meaning. 'At the end refers to a point in time where an event or action comes to an end. 'In the end' talks about a conclusion after a series of actions or events.

At the end

'At the end' refers to a specific point in time or location that marks the conclusion of something. It is often used to describe the final part of a journey or the last moment of an event. Note that 'at the end' is always followed by 'of'. Have a look:

He was held captive and at the end of the seventh day, he escaped.

In the end

'In the end' refers to the final outcome or result of a situation or event, after all the various factors and circumstances have been considered. It is typically used to describe the resolution of a problem or the conclusion of a story. Have a look:

In the end, he managed to defeat his enemies.
