  1. “Under” is usuaully used in direct relation to the object in question whereas “below” can mean “anywhere that is not above”. So, in a sense “below” encompasses a larger area. In some contexts, such as this one, “below” is more typical because it actually means “anywhere that is not above the line” whereas “under” would give more the impression of the area that is more or less “in contact” with the black line. It’s not a critical difference though and if you were to say “under” it would be perfectly understandable. Very often these expressions are just a consequence of popular use: one expression “sounds better” in a certain context than another.

  2. Stefania, scusami, c’è stata un po’ di confusione da parte mia qui.
    La frase è: Vorrei finirlo prima della fine della prossima settimana.
    Quindi la tua versione, “I’d like to finish it before the next weekend” in effetti funziona!
    🙂

  3. Se vuoi controllare una versione diversa da quelle offerte qui sopra o se hai qualche perplessità riguardo una regola o un modo di dire, lasciate un commento qui e risponderò al più presto.
