    go of it

    I don't know where to post it, can't see any place dedicated for TOEFL/IELTS.

    Anyway, I did this exercise, and answered almost all the questions correctly, all but this one: The burning stick was very hot. He let __(go of it)___ just in time.

    I don't seem to even have a clue what go of it means.

    Re: go of it

    "To let go of something" is to release your grip on it. He had the hot stick in his hand but he dropped it or took his hand away from it.
