    Re: use phrasal verbs

    I have these same sentences from an old teacher's notebook for an exercise in using academic English. The assignment was to rephrase for academic uses. I am not sure of the answers. Does someone know what book these came from?
    I will guess at the answer as follows:
    1. has gotten more intense -. has intensified
    2. do not have enough land -. have too little land
    3. do not happen very often -. are rare
    4. made bigger to ease loading and unloading the vehicles

    These are my guesses, not sure, anyone know what book this came from and the 'proper' answer.
    Thanks,
    Drew
