Task 4 is difficult for me.Help me,please!!!!!

Hello bella
Are you having problems because the exercise is too difficult? Or is it that you are not sure what to do?
All the verbs in Task 4 are used in the episode, so if you look through the transcript you should be able to find them. When you do, think about the meaning of the sentence and look at the other words they are used with. This should help you work out the answers to Task 4.
Does this answer your question?
I hope it helps
All the best
