Synonyms of "Ten" and their differences

A: “I can be there in about ten minutes” implies that while you haven’t actually left yet, you can be there if needed.

“I should be there in about ten minutes”, however, implies you have already left and are on your way to your destination.
Q: What is the difference between I shall have lived here for ten years by next April.  and I will have been here for ten years by next April.  ?
A: Yes, they are interchangeable if you are having a conversation about a living situation. “I will have been here” is more broad, and could be used for school, work, or other things. But if someone had asked “how long have you lived here?” You could absolutely say “I will have been here for 10 years by next April.”

"as far as" means it probably will not stretch further!
Q: What is the difference between I'll call you in ten minutes and I'll call you ten minutes later ?
A: For example, you're talking with you're friend on the phone and it's 12:40. He says "My boss is trying to call me. I'll call you in 10 minutes." He will call you at 12:50.

"I'll call you 10 minutes later." Here's a situation where you might hear it. You and your friend are planning a surprise party for another friend. You might have a conversation like this:
You: When should I bring our friend to their surprise birthday party?
Friend: I'm going to welcome the other guests and then call you 10 minutes later so that they have time to hide behind the couch.

I'll call in 10 minutes=I'll call you 10 minutes from now.
I'll call you 10 minutes later=I'll do something or something will happen and then, the call will be dialed 10 minutes after that.
