Chemistry teacher

'Between' is used when there are 2 in the context ex: The you and I need to share this between us. 'Among' is used when there are more than 3 in the context ex: The 3 of you could split the task among yourselves.

Between is used when a person has to make a choice involving 2 items and Among is to be used for choices to be made involving more than two items.

Between is used when comparing two things. Among is used when comparing more than two things.

between is used to refer two persons, places, timings which are cleared separated whereas among is used for a group. We use among to talk about things which are not clearly separated because they are part of a group or crowd or mass of objects

Hi Akhileshwar, We use between when two things are separate. We use among when things are not clearly separated, and are a part of a crowd, group etc. e.g. Between - There was a scooter between the car and the bus. Among - We found some bookmarks among his books.

Many people believe “between” should be used for choices involving two items and “among” for choices that involve more than two items. That can get you to the right answer some of the time, but it's not that simple (1, 2, 3, 4)
