Hi

I need some help. I don't understand the meaning or the function of the word "on" in this phrases:
Can I try on the blue ones please?
Can I try it on please?
We just can say "Can I try the blue ones please?"
It's about a grammar form?

Hello Marcela Santos,

'Try on' is an example of a multi-word verb, also called a phrasal verb, where the verb occurs with a particle (a preposition or adverb) to create a new meaning.

'Try' has a very general meaning. 'Try on' has a more specific meaning and is used only in connection with clothes.

You can read more about these verbs here and here.

is it true to say: do you have them in blue? instead of : have you got them in blue?

Hello xsjra,

Yes, both of those are perfectly fine and have the same meaning.

Hi I couldn't put all these sentence in the box you have to fix it I can only put one in each

Hello Bassantmoustaf2017,

In Task 1, only one sentence can go in each box. In Task 2, after you have one sentence in a box, you must add the second (or third, etc.) sentence by

  1. clicking or pressing on the sentence you want to move
  2. when you try to add it to the box, you must click or press on the small hand that is on the right side of the sentence that is already in the box

My explanation makes it sound difficult, but actually it's quite easy. Please let me know if you can't get it to work.

All the best,

I can't answer task two because each one has more than one answer but it didn't accept but one

Hello siba azeez,

To add items to each list you need to click on the box, not on one of the items already added because this will swap them. The best way is to click on the title of the box (which turns to dark grey after your first click). That way you will be able to add multiple items.
