hello,
Pleas could you help me to find the correct phresal verbs, in some sentences there is only a verb to be put in, while in others either a preposition or the whole phresal verb.
I put my proposals in brackets, but they may be either wrong or there might be others that fit the context. thanks for any help

1. He put ................his name for the excursion.
2. Don't ................. (stay) up for me. I'll probably be back very late.
3. He was ................ up for six weeks with two legs broken.
4. I'll .................... (pick) up at your office and take you straight to the station.
5. She was the only one to .....................(stand) up for me. No one else said anything.
6. He read the novel, .............(leaving/missing) out the dull descriptive passages.
7. He had stage fright at first but he ...............(got rid) of it very quickly.
8. The car ....................(pulled up) suddenly with screaming brakes.
9. English people have to .................. (get on with) English weather.
10. I'm in charge while Smith is away ; I ...................(take over) from him on June 1.
11 I saw a policeman so I ...................(came up to) him and asked him the way.
12 Don't be ........................(put off) by her odd appearance; she is really very nice.

1-- down?
2-- YES-- or 'wait'
3-- laid
4-- pick YOU
5-- YES
6-- hmm. Maybe leaving, but seems a bit odd.
7-- YES, but that's not a phrasal
8-- YES
9-- These seem to be mostly 'up' phrasals, so I'd plump for 'put up with'
10-- YES-- took over
11-- YES
12-- YES

I suspect that there are a number of other, and perhaps better, choices, Yogi.
1. put on
2. wait up
5. as you suggested: stand up
6. leaving
7. your choice:got rid of
8. I don't know, but pull up is slowly!

thanks for your suggestions.

As MrM said 'get rid' is not a phrasal verb, does anyone know what phrasal would fit the sentence #7.

7. He had stage fright at first but he ...............of it very quickly.

I'm also interested if there are any other phrasal verbs that fit the sentences.

Would 'turn' work in #4?
4. I'll .................... (turn) up at your office and take you straight to the station.

thank you
got out of it?
I think you can use "turn up" indicating that you'll go there unexpectedly. It's more natural to use it with the pronouns that do not refer to first persons!
7. 'Snapped out of' would work.

4. No, because 'turn up' is by surprise or in an unplanned manner. For the same reason, 'show up' or 'pop up' would also be strange. No other ideas, sorry.

For number seven I'd say "got over it".
1. He put ................his name for the excursion.
2. Don't ................. (stay) up for me. I'll probably be back very late.
3. He was ................ up for six weeks with two legs broken.
4. I'll .................... (pick) up at your office and take you straight to the station.
5. She was the only one to .....................(stand) up for me. No one else said anything.
6. He read the novel, .............(leaving/missing) out the dull descriptive passages.
7. He had stage fright at first but he ...............(got rid) of it very quickly.
8. The car ....................(pulled up) suddenly with screaming brakes.
9. English people have to .................. (get on with) English weather.
10. I'm in charge while Smith is away ; I ...................(take over) from him on June 1.
11 I saw a policeman so I ...................(came up to) him and asked him the way.
12 Don't be ........................(put off) by her odd appearance; she is really very nice
