idioms = phrasal verbs. Is that correct ?

What does it mean by saying "cry uncle" ? Is it idiom or phrasal verb ?

What does it mean by saying "see someone off for the day" ? Is it idiom or phrasal verb ?

Thank you.

A phrasal verb is a combination of a verb and an adverb or preposition, for example `shut up' or `look after', which together have a particular meaning.

An idiom is a group of words which have a different meaning when used together from the one they would have if you took the meaning of each word separately.
