    Your "take" on a situation is your opinion, your thoughts.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I've never heard someone saying only, "I'll give you my take." Normally, people will say, "my take on it".

    I have.

    Jim, what's your take?

    Let me give you my take.

    I wonder what Alice's take will be.
