Would you please explain the below sentence at the of the first conversation?
'' I was the only interview that day''.
I think something is wrong!

Thank you in advance.

Hi kaveh,

It's a correct sentence, actually! It means that the speaker was the only person who was interviewed on that day.

Logically, you might find it strange to say I was the (only) interview, as I refers to a person, and the interview refers to a situation. But, it's quite common to phrase it like this in modern usage. Here are some similar examples:

  • They told me that I was the second interview of four that day.
  • I was the first presentation at the conference, so the audience was full.
  • When I went for my piano exam, I was the last exam of the day.

Does that answer your question?
