    Exclamation give up, carry out

    Hello there.


    give up the plan
    carry out the plan

    Can I say "give the plan up" or "carry the plan out"?

    It sounds strange to me, but we can say "give it up" or "carry it out", right?

    Please help me!

    Yes, you can say either of those; not at the same time though!
