I'm opening this new thread because I'm a little bit confused and perplexed about the use of these two phrasal verbs: to fall off and to fall out of, specifically in sentences like these:
1) Did he fall out (Is OFF also possible without changing the meaning?) or was he pushed?
2) Did he fall off/out of the bike or was he pushed?
3) Today I've found a baby bird that had fallen off his nest/fallen out of his nest (Do they mean the same?)
4) I was fixing a bulb up and while I was on the ladder I accidentely fell off it/ fell out of it. (WHich one? Both possible?)
How to decide which one is correct between the two?
