Imagine, a decision is made. It was made no more than 1 hour ago.

What are all possible ways to refer to it if we want to use 'last hour'?

  1. last hour decision
  2. decision of last hour
  3. I assume, 'decision in last hour' isn't correct because it means something else ?

Is 1 and 2 correct ?

1 Answer 1


The decision was made in the last hour. It is a decision of the last hour.

in the last hour functions adverbally:

When was the decision made?
-- In the last hour.

of the last hour functions adjectivally:

To what part of the day (or of the crisis, project, operation, whatever) does the decision belong?
-- It is a decision of the last hour.
