A very short question: is the following sentence correct?

What should we do (...) the rest of the day?

Could the sentence do without a preposition (in, for), or is one needed?

  • Never heard that without a preposition. At times we just go with the flow without any confirmation. That's how we learn those common things.

  • @MaulikV Well I have. What now? ( : Although I was only able to find a smattering of results in COCA, I had better luck with the new iWeb corpus.

I would say for the rest of the day. You could omit one and your listener would understand but it sounds more correct with it. You could also use during but I would not use in.
