Hi there. There is a quiz from book "Grammar and vocabulary for First Certificate", preparing for the ESOL First Certificate in English (FCE) (Cambridge University) . It's extracted from one module, devoted to Phrasal Verbs : take. It implies upper-intermediate level. I hope it would be useful.

1. We ought to get rid of this table, it takes far too much space.
2. If you're hot, you can take your jacket.
3. This meat can't be fresh, it smells awful - I'm taking it to the butcher.
4. John has always been difficult - he must take his dad.
5. You shouldn't take more responsobilities you can handle.
6. It must be difficult to give teaching in order to travel.
7. We'll need to take some temporary teachers for the summer.
8. She took her glasses when she had her photograph taken.
9. He was such a charmer - he took me completely.
10. Rachel took me to lunch.

Hi, GG. I've set that. Could you explain me?

If I say - He was such a charmer - I took to him completely. Would it be right?
He was such a charmer - he took me in completely. Does it mean he deceived me? Or gave me place to live?

I'm happy to read this, because this was the only one I got wrong! Emotion: smile

@Fandorin: Could you please double-check numbers 4 and 10? (the text, I mean, not the answer). Thanks!

Deceived.
He was so kind. He took me in when I had no where else to go. That would mean he gave me a place to live.
