(e) First, you put/pour water into the pot.
Thanks. So, do you mean :

(a) , (b) , (c) are incorrect?

Vincent TeoCan I write:

First, you fill water into the pot.
No. It is the pot being filled, not the water. Use one of MM's answers.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
hi,

I think just write fill the glass with water if you want to use the verb 'fill', unless you want your glass to be full of water then fill it up.
Thank. But If I say,

Please fill a pot of water and put it on the table.

(Isn't ok?)
.
Not really, Vincent.

Please fill a pot with water and put it on the table.
