Synonyms of "Day" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between Take every day food as an example. and Take every day food, for example. ?

Second sentence sounds like you are replying to the first sentence and don't understand what it meant.

"Everyday" and "day-to-day" can mean the same thing = 日常。

A: It has been raining all day - it has been raining until now (it might not in the future)
it is raining all day - it will be raining for the whole day (it will probably continue in the future)
Q: What is the difference between some day and one day ?
A: "one day" suggests more direct action that will take place on that particular day, whereas "someday" (notice one day is two words, someday is one) is less dramatic and suggests a looser timeframe. "one day I will be king." "some day I will be king." the first is much more declarative and assured. the second seems to be less sure as to when he will become king! very small difference in meaning however.
Q: What is the difference between I remember the day when I first met him. and I remember the day when I met him first. ?
A: Which meeting are you remembering? The first meeting. So "first" describes "met" -- and therefore goes closest to the word it is describing.

"I remember the day when I first met him" is correct.

(You could also say "I remember the day when I met him *for the first time." But I don't want to make things too confusing by throwing in prepositional phrases.)

Q: A day trip to London
On the early morning we took the train at 8 sharp in Reading's train station. On the way there, i grabbed my London guidebook to see how to get to the city's most popular spots. After an hour, we turned up in London. First, we went to the Backingham Palace. Luckly we arrived on time to see the changing of the guard. That was marvelous! Also the Palace's parks are outstanding. Then, we walked through Birdcage Walk to the Big Ben. You can see the River Thames from there. We took advantage of our splending view for taking a brunch since i got peckish and so did my friend. I had the opportunity to take stunning pictures of the Thames from where we were. After that, we took a guided tour at the British museum and then, at the Sherlock Holmes museum. I'm a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes so that was a mandatory visit for me.
Several hours afterward, we set off at 7 pm back to Leading. London is definitely one of my favourite cities of the world.

Are these sentences basically the same meaning?
A: Yes they are all about the same
Q: “I remember the day that he was here.”
“I remember the day that he was here on.”
Which one is correct and why?
A: Only personally I would say #1 sounds better. The "on" is often dropped in this sort of declaration. I can't tell you a rule or reason. I don't think either sentence is incorrect, but #1 sounds more natural (to me).

It's seems the "on" can come and go. :)

What day were you here?
What day were you here on?
On what day were you here?
What day were you here?
I was here on Tuesday.
I was here Tuesday.

They're all correct. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Q: He asked me not to come here every day rather every other day.

“He asked me not to come here every day, but rather every other day.”
