最後の質問が解けたところで、試験終了のチャイムが鳴ったんだ。

What does で after ところ mean ?

6

One of the definitions of ところで is 「時に(ときに)」 'at the time of ____', 'as _____ happens/happened'.

'As I solved the last question, the bell ending the test sounded.'

  • Thanks. But can I use ところに instead of ところで ? – Kiw Feb 1 '19 at 3:23
  • @Kiw This should answer your question: japanese.stackexchange.com/questions/18967 – BJCUAI Feb 1 '19 at 4:48
  • so I have just read it. Could I ask for the accurate information ? 1.I think ところで and ところに is interchangeable, isn't it ? 2. From the link, I'm not sure what is the difference between " Time " and " Location in time " ,but I think "Location in time " stresses that something occurs within an action. And I think " Time " just implies that when an action being processed something occurs. Is that right ? Sorry if my sentences are vague. – Kiw Feb 1 '19 at 16:56
