I'm a bit confused by the phrase "pull one's weight'. Could you guys tell me what does it mean?
Does it mean he did a job beyond his capabilities or he did just his share of work? Or it depends on the context?
What does it mean in this sentence?
Wow Ben you really pulled weight in that exam today.
To "pull one's weight" means to do one's share of the work, to do what is expected of one, especially in a group activity.
"Wow, Ben really pulled (his) weight in that exam today!"
This example, even with the changes I've suggested, isn't natural English unless the exam was a group activity that required Ben to do his part.
