    I think B is the correct answer. "Get away" here means "escape potentially unpleasant consequences".

    Re: Why are you so happy?

    Ushakranthi, almost the whole Ask a Teacher page is taken up with your posts checking on your answers. If you are doing an exercise or a test, you should try your own answers first and check them with the answer key. If there are any you get wrong and you don't understand why, then come back and ask us.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    They are all incorrect because of incorrect spacing. You persist in doing this despite having been asked not to.
