What is a complex phrasal verb?

Assuming that's what you intended to ask, there are two definitions you'll find online.

1) phrasal verbs with three components, not the usual two, the second of which may be called a particle or adverb and the third, a preposition
(These can also be called phrasal prepositional verbs.)

break down into, move in on, look down on, come up with, get on with

2) phrasal verbs interrupted by nouns that create highly idiomatic expressions

take a glance at, take a look at, take a stand on, take advantage of, take care of, take part in, take precautions against, take responsibility for
