I have three questions to ask:
Summer here is so hot that most people try to ________ somewhere.
a. get away b.move off
The key is "a". No problem. Could you please explain why "b" isn't correct?
His repeated efforts did not ________ a miracle.
a. make b. work
The key is "b". No problem. But I can find "make a miracle" on the Internet. Could you please explain why "a" isn't the correct choice?
Smoking in theis five-star hotel is _________.
a. declined b. prohibited
The key is "b". No problem. Could you please explain if I want to show politeness can I choose "a"?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Thank you in advance.
1 'Move off' is used for things like cars when the traffic lights turn green and most verbs with 'move' have a greater sense of permance- if you move away, you go and live somewhere else.
2 It's there, but take a look at the contexts; they're mostly about love, while working miracles is more down-to-earth and about achieving practical results.
3 No; you are capable of making choices and can decline something, but smoking cannot make decisions.
