    Without more context it's not possible to say exactly what it means, but it seems to say that something, (it) is located in the cage which is next to the cart. You do know what a cage is I suppose?

    Thank you for your answer.
    I know what a cage and a cart mean but the sentence is strange in the context.

    "You were engaged when you bought the car, right?
    Yes, it's in the cage by the cart."
    I don't understand the link between the two sentences.
    Thank you for your help.

    Sorry, it doesn't make any sense to me, is there any more context?

    A) Yes, it's in the cage by he cart.
    B)No, my fiancé can't drive.
    C)We bought the car in March.

    According to the book the correct answer is A

    Really strange for me.
    I thought it was an idiom but I didn't find in a dictionary.
    Never mind

    A is definitely wrong, Bhai is right. Even good books have some misprints, unless they're twentieth editions.
