I'm doing a vocabulary test and having some problems with a question which reads:
I'm hoping to _______later this year.
a) get promoted b) get promotion c) have promoted.
I'm supposed to choose one alternative. I don't understand why b) is incorrect. I've consulted my Oxford collocations dictionary and found the following entry:
get /gain/ win / receive / earn promotion
If I can't get promotion soon, I'll look for another job.
Why is it wrong in the test?
I'd be grateful for help.
"b" must include the article, "a" to be correct.
get a promotion.
It is a specific promotion.
