    Thank you
    Take something away means to remove something or make something to disappear so the answer is d.

    Re: These shoes are uncomfortable.

    Do you know what phrasal verbs we use with clothing/shoes? Here is one:

    I am going to put my shoes on.
    Put your hat on.
    I have put my coat on.
    Please put your socks on.
    The man will put his trousers on.

    Now, I'm sure you have heard/read the opposite of "to put on" somewhere while you have been studying English.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
