    Re: Back to back

    I hope this isn't homework. The correct answer is b, "high and low." "Search high and low" is a standard phrase, or even a cliché, meaning to search thoroughly.

    Are you using the app on your phone? If so, it's possible that there is no "Thank" button. If you're using the full website on your computer and you can't see the "Thank" button, please post a message in the Support Area section of the forum, giving details of your computer, operating system and browser.
