    in case vs provided

    hello everybody !!!!

    I'd like you to help me with the following sentence:

    Call me_____________ there's an emergency.

    a. in the case
    b. provided

    The teacher's book gives (a) as the correct answer. Is (a) possible?? provided does not seem appropriate to me.However, i thought there is no such expression like in the case .I've seen it only followed by of (e.g.in the case of emergency). Then i thought that it may be a printer's error.Now i'm confused!

    Thank you so much for your help.!!! bye!!

    Re: in case vs provided

    I think it's a printing error- I'd use 'in case'.
