Hello,
I would like to know the difference between:
"we did it", and "we made it", coz both seems reasonable to be used, as both have the meaning:
"we accomplished something at the end"!
Thanx :)

Hi Niveen

There is an informal expression in English: "do a (city/country/etc.)".

The word "do" in this context is similar to "to tour" (in the sense if to visit and do things). And that was the intended meaning in the test sentence.

If you visit Europe for a week and try to see as many countries as possible in that time, you could later say "I did Europe in seven days."
