    Which phrasal verbs are equivalents for the following definitions? Do you confirm my answers?


    1. to compete for the best position = jockey for
    2. to ask someone questions to find out their views = sound out
    3. to be nice to someone in order to get them to do what you want = butter up
    4. to spend a lot of money = fritter away (possibly run through)

    5. to have a strong desire for something= hanker after
    6. to care for a child until it is an adult, often giving it particular beliefs = bring up
    7. to be similar to an older member of your family in appearance or character = take after
    8. have smooth relations = get along

    Looking forward to being let in on them. Thank you
