Dear Dorsten,
Could you explain me the usage of the phrasal verbs mark ... in sentence №7, please? Then what does the word make on mean? I can't find it anywhere. Thanks a lot.
Yours sincerely,

Hello Ramilya and Wanderer,
This question is referring to the phrasal verb 'marked down.'
This means that an item's price is brought down/decreased. If an item is marked down, it will probably sell faster and, then, there will more room/space in the store for new items.
'Make on' doesn't make any sense as a phrasal verb. It has no meaning.
