1) I cleaned the windows every day that she was here.

2) I cleaned the windows every day when she was here.

Is there a difference between the meanings of the above sentences?

I think '2' corresponds to:

a) When she was here, I cleaned the windows every day.

3) I ate an apple every day that you went out.

4) I ate an apple every day when you went out.

Is there a difference between the meanings of the above sentences?

I think '4' corresponds to:

b) I ate an apple every day, when you went out.

 

Gratefully,

Hello, Navi,

Sentence (2) could correspond to (a), but it could also correspond to (c):

c) She came every day, and I cleaned the windows every day, but I cleaned the windows only during the period of every day which coincided with her being here.

I agree. And your meaning (b) is logically parallel to my meaning (c) above.
