    pick up

    “This is bad,” was all I could manage to say.

    “Yeah, I kind of picked up on that, too.”

    “No, I mean really bad. Like, to a level I didn’t know badness could reach.”

    I also perceived that was how you felt. From everything I have seen and heard, I understand that it was bad.

    I hope this is helpful to you.
