there no telling if 4.75 attack heppens before the 1 secodn expires or after.
There's an easy way. See, the spell is set to end at 5.0 next second. So it's still in effect for the entire rest of this second. When 5.0 of the next second comes around, the spell ends, just like it would in the first case, only now the character under the effect of the spell doesn't get to act until 4.5.

So:
Second n-1
5.0 - Character acts
4.75 - Foe acts; spell protects
Second n
5.0 - Character acts; Spell ends
4.75 - Foe acts; spell doesn't protect (it ended)
Second n+1
5.0 - Character acts
4.75 - Foe acts
... and so forth for the first case.

Second n-1
5.0 - Character delays
4.75 - Foe acts; spell protects
4.5 - Character acts
Second n
5.0 - Spell ends
4.75 - Foe acts; spell doesn't protect (it ended)
4.5 - Character acts
Second n+1
4.75 - Foe acts
4.5 - Character acts
... and so forth for the second case.
