    She gave up; she copped out.

    Pronunciation
    Past tense: "copped" [kapt]
    Present tense: "cop" [kap]

    EX: You said you would go to the movie with us, but now you're not going to go? Don't cop out on us. You should come. :D

    Can someone explain the meaning to me?

    All the best, :D

    Thanks for your correct and help. But I have one question on this again.
    You wrote that the Past tense and the Present tense are the same writing.
    I have copied this sentence from a grammer exercise in the internet.

    It is the last sentence.

    Is "copped" eventually Amerikan-English? Or is there a misspelling?

    Thanks in advance
