.
It freezes because it is very cold. Your choice, frozen, is the past participle, which requires assistance from is (is frozen) or has (has frozen) to become a complete verb phrase.

No. Here, 'take the times...' = consider for example the times...

You could also say: Think of how often the temperature fell below zero.

Hello,

I found nowhere the idiom take the times... and unfortunately I don't understand why the time is in plural.
I found :
1. Take one's time...= There is no hurry ! Please take your time.
2.Take your time= to not hurry
Exp: Take your time - this is a big decision!
3.. Take the time = it spend enough time to do sth.
Exp: If you take the time to rtead the direction you won't have any trouble.
4.take time out = to stop activity temporelly.
Exp: Some women take time out from careers when their children are very young.
5. How long does it take to go downtown?
-It takes two hours. or It won't take long.
6. Take time =time-consuming
It takes tome to recover from trhis illness.
It takes time to do the homework. etc
7. Take your time over sth = not hurry use as much time as needs.
Exp:Take your time over the job and do it well.

thanks.

As MM has mentioned, "take the times" means simply "consider the times". It's not an idiom per ce.
The word "time" is used in plural because it indicates multiple occurences/instances, not one occurence/instance.

Take the times when he was unhappy - consider the times when he was unhappy. (for example, on 01/21/2010 (first time) and on 03/30/2010 (second time) he was unhappy)
