    ANS.: 個人意見 Arrive by 15-12-2006 是 15/12 當日 或 之前到達 。

    因為常用的 Arrive at / arrive in 是用於 特定一天 / 一刻到達的 意思。

    To reach a destination.

    To come at length; take place: The day of reckoning has arrived.

    To achieve success or recognition: He had finally arrived as a designer.

    Phrasal Verb(s):

    To reach through effort or a process: arrive at a decision after much thought.

    因為日子所連用的介詞是on,所以
