Hi.

That would be kind of you to help find the right perpositions for the following sentences. More than one is possible for each one.

1. I have just hung the wash out, and it's starting to rain. Can you help me to bring it--------?

I can think of in and back

2. When the sun went-------------it was really cold.

I can think of off, down and away

3. Myaunt fell---------the stairs and broke her leg.

I can think of off and down

4. Don't throw that empty box--------I'm sure I can use it for something.

I can think of out and away

Your time is appreciated

1-- Just 'in'.

3-- Just 'down'.
4-- Both are OK.
Thanks Mister Micawber

What does wash out mean in the first sentence? - Hang out the wash = Hang the washed clothes outside.

Does it mean the cloth that has been washed?-- 'Wash' (n) = the clothes that are being or have been washed.
1. I have just hung the wash out, and it's starting to rain. Can you help me bring it in?
2. When the sun went down, it was really cold.
3. Myaunt fell down the stairs and broke her leg.
4. Don't throw that empty box away, I'm sure I can use it for something.

Those are what I think are the best answers.
Thanks.

As you cited two possible alternatives for the last one. I wonder if there is any difference between throw out and throw away?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Not really. Some people use one, and some the other.
I agree with Mister Micawber, but I prefer throw out.
Also, I seem to see throw away more often in conversations and books.
