    1. These phrasal verbs can be very confusing. A doctor can "make out" or fill out a prescroption (write a prescription). One could also say "Can you make out this prescription" to mean "can you read what it says"? In addition, boys and giorls often make out at parties (kiss). A pharmacist can "make up" a prescription (fill the prescription). A couple can "make up" (get back together) after a fight.

    2. Yes, B is correct. Even though this person is not too old to work, he may be too old to continue professional tennis.

    3. One could make a case for "probable", but "possible" is far more common. The only real difference is in the likelihood.

    4. Attempt. I would tend to use "in" or "on" instead of "at".
