well i have some difficulty in understanding this sentence
the train ran out of puff
what does it mean?
and can you give me any example related to this word * puff*
but i need an explanation
I went jogging this morning, but after 10 minutes I ran out of puff and walked home.
"Puff" is like "sufficient energy" in that example. When a person "puffs" they breathe heavily due to exertion. A steam train is said to "puff" - it's the little clouds of steam that come from it, as well as being used as the sound it makes when moving.
thank u i got it now
