    Arrow Some lake do not have a river to carry the water and salt away.

    Hello All,
    " ... Some rivers run into the seas and oceans.They carry a little salt with them.
    some of the ocean water move into the air and clouds.it evaporates.
    Some lakes do not have a river to carry the water and salt away.... "

    What is the meaning of 'have' and 'carry away' on the bold sentence?
    Have something to do something ?what does it mean?

    Where did you find the quote which starts "Some rivers run into seas"? It's not well written.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Salt does not evaporate. Water evaporates.

    It don't start with "Some rivers run into seas". Because the context was too long to put there I want to put the part of them here.

    You still need to tell us where you found this quote.

    I don't understand. Are you saying that salt evaporates if you want it to?

    Re: Some lake do not have a river to carry the water and salt away.

    Regardless of all that, it's the first definition of "have" in the link you provided. But the language and "facts" if that passage should not be trusted.
    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.

    Thanks so much.
    But it still doesn't make sense to me . Did the context indicated that lake have a river?!What does it mean when saying lake have a river?
