Calm down #2 (permalink) Sun Oct 24, 2004 13:07 pm   Calm down
 

Hello Ali,

Welcome to english-test.net!

If you calm down you become less upset or excited. You start relaxing after being tense and worried.

Example:

After the car crash Sally was shocked and began to cry. However, as soon as the young police officer started to speak in a soft and soothing tone Sally managed to calm down again.

Let us know if you have any further questions. Regards
Torsten

I'll hazard a guess that it doesn't mean anything. It's just a distractor, an option that doesn't fit the sentence.
In fact, neither of the other three options (other than "calm down") mean anything.
