Please help me with this one:
R.Murphy English Grammar In Use says:
"Sometimes a phrasal verb has an object. Usually there are two possible positions for the object. So you can say:
I turned on the light. I turned the light on.
If the object is a pronoun (it/them/me/him etc.), only one position is possible.
I turned it on.
But how about this sentence:
She is looking after it.
We can't say
"She is looking him after."
So, if "look after" is a phrasal verb, then why don't we put personal pronoun "it" in the middle as it says in the above mentioned rule?
