with reference to these phrasal verbs:
|would you please explain the difference between them |
(a) going on
(b) taking off
(c) going by
(d) taking in
You have to accept that these so-called phrasal verbs (verb+preposition) have different meanings in different contexts and so the meaning I am giving to each one is only one example.
(a) means happening/taking place
(b) means leaving the ground as when an aeroplane starts to fly up
(c) means passing from one side to another
(d) means understanding.
