    At a fast-food shop:
    Are these all common?
    1. "A burger and a coke, please." "Can I supersize it for you?"
    2. "A burger and a coke, please." "Can I supersize them for you?"
    3. "Supersize me, please."
    4. "Can I supersize you?"

    BTW, what other sizes do you have? Can they also
    be used as a verb?
    Thank you.

    'Size up' is used for when a company tries to encoruage consumers to get into the habit of buying a larger product, like those huge chocolate bars. It also means 'assess a situation'.
