Correct answer: (a) dawn

Hi Alan! Why in answers there ‘day’ and ‘dawn’. Both ‘crack of day’ and ‘crack of dawn’ means the same - dawn

Hi Thinker,

You are right - at the crack of dawn means very early in the morning. At the break of day.[YSaerTTEW443543]

Torsten, What the difference then?

Many many thanks in advance

Hello dear Torsten !I cannot catch the difference. Maybe it is the same.
Many many thanks in advance

Well,

Crack of dawn which means at the first sign of light, might be a more poetic way to say that the break of day has arrived.[YSaerTTEW443543]

the crack of dawn is when the sun first rises over the hill. its really beatiful where i live because i watch the sunrise across the big lake, looks more like an ocean but im on the coast. i will take a picture sometime.
