    I still think it's a... For instance, imagine this: - where is she? - she letf. she gave up. she quit. (she gave in doesn't sound the same as those)

    But "give up" is the only phrasal verb

    I thought ''give in'' was kind of a phrasal verb as well

    Are you sure, ash? Leave can also mean give up sometimes, right?

    See if look at the options a, c and d give in, quit and give up these all mean to cease something may be to cease fighting or arguing but leave doesn't mean that

    Give in= to quit resisted, and give up. Give up= to give up Quit= Stop resisting and give up. Leave= to go away. To a degree leave can be used to say "give up" but that almost never the case.

    I don't know how I didn't see the "in" of the A op. My bad...
