    Exclamation two-particle phrasal verbs

    I am studing phrasal verbs with 2 particles and sometimes is difficult for me to understand their meaning. Another problem I usually have on phrasals exams is that I have a sentence and I have to complete it with the right phrasal verb and although I studied it, I don't realise that I have to write it there. Do you understand what I mean? I don't realise from the context.

    well.. I would like to know the meaning of:

    *fool around with something (I looked it up but I still don't understand)
    *keep up with (I know the meaning of it but I need an example) =)
    *pull out of (I don't know the meaning.)

    Muchas Gracias (Thank you!!)
