I found a sentence in a book, and I think it is grammatically wrong.
the sentence is "I broke up the lamp to fit into the box."
shouldn't it be "I broke up the lamp to fit it into the box.", if it's the lamp that goes into the box, not me?
and one more question, can I change "broke up the lamp" to "broke down the lamp" keeping the meaning same?
thank you in advance!
thanks for your reply.
but, as far as I know "break sth up" means to separate them.
just check it out on an online english dictionary.
