Student or Learner
(1) Memorial Day is a US national holiday _______ to remember those who gave their lives in the service of the nation.
A. set up B. set aside
Which one sounds a natural collocation from a native's point of view?
(2) Ever since the global financial crisis ______ on the Wall Street, many countries have suffered from it seriously.
A. arose B. burst
I know Answer A means "happen", which fits the situation.
But is Answer B wrong in this situation. As far as I learn, "burst" has a sense of happening suddenly and powerfully.
Thanks for your help!
Thanks for your wonderful explanation!
Just to confirm: We can SET UP an organization, but cannot SET UP a holiday. Is it so?
