    Default get round

    Dear teachers,

    The company __________ the crisis by obtaining a low-interest loan from the bank.
    a. got round b. got through
    The key is "a". No problem. But I think "b" is also possible. Is that right?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang
