"In" vs "during"

Subha, what is the source of this sentence?  Is it your own?  Is it from a workbook?  There are a couple of problems with it.

Both "during" and "in" are acceptable, but the verb should be "was", not "is".  You could also say "John's total business income for March", in which case "is" works if March has just ended and the final numbers have just been tallied.  Otherwise, the verb should still be "was".

Also, there needs to be a hyphen between "fifty" and "six", but not between "six" and "thousand":

  • John's total business income for March was fifty-six thousand dollars.
