    The correct particle

    I've got some problems with 3 sentences. Could you help me a bit?

    1. By 1980, flared trousers were ............ . Nobody seemed to like them any more.
    I was thinking about out here, but I doubt it's good...

    2. This is a difficult task - do you think he will be ........... it?

    3. We may be ........... a cold winter this year.




    Can you give me a clue?
    Thanks in advance!
