Please consider these terms:
I am not quite sure which one of the can be used for which sense below:
- A total number / amount
- A summary of what you have just said
I have made some examples; I was wondering which option(s) sound(s) correct in the following examples?
A) How did your interview go?
B) At first, the interviewer asked me some professional questions that I didn't know, but later I made it up when I spoke about my resume. _____________, it went well.
a. By and large
b. All in all
I think, all the three options work here with more or less the same meaning.
A) How much shall I pay?
B) That'll be $52.50 _________, please.
a. by and large
b. all in all
Based on dictionaries, I think the only possible choice in this case would be "a"; the options "b" and "c" don't work here in my view.
