Retired English Teacher
Please take a look at the sentence below.
"Efficient time management is the chief lesson that a responsible student must (A. study B. take C. learn)."
I think if "lesson" in this sentence means a period of time in which someone is taught a particular skill, or a period of time in which students in school are taught a particular subject, the correct answer should be A or B; if "lesson" means an experience, especially an unpleasant one, that makes someone more careful in the future, the answer should be C.
I am wondering whether A, B and C are all possible answers, since the collocations "study a lesson," "take a lesson," and "learn a lesson" are all correct, or only C is the correct answer. Thank you.
