What's the opposite of "to plug in something"?
For example: Do not forget to plug in the TV!
Is the hairdryer plugged into the wall?
Did you plug in your mobile phone there? You have to charge it up before leaving.
Are "to put out - to switch off - to turn off" possible?
Thanks for your help-
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.
"Turn off" is the opposite of "turn on".
"Switch off" is the opposite of "switch on".
Some people will say "put out" when referring to electric lights. The opposite is "put on".
When you have finished watching TV, you "turn it off" and then you "unplug it". They're not the same thing.
