    sort it out

    Hi

    A man came to a woman's house to talk to her. He said that something's wrong with his wife and that she's mixed up in it. She didn't know in what way she was mixed up in it.So he told her:

    Iíll just tell you what I know and then maybe you can
    sort it out.Now, f írinstance . . .Up to the time Sydney was
    took ill, my wife seemed to think very highly of you...


    What is the most probable meaning of "sort it out" here?
