    Turn up: She turned up last night or She turned up late last night.
    Give in: We can't give in to the student's demands.
    Check in: We checked in at Beach Hotel at 1: p.m.
    Step down: We will not have any teacher if she steps down from her job.
    Run down: He runs his classmates down a lot.
    Come across: We have never come across this word before.
    Open out: This class room opens out into another one.
    Turn down: I don’t want to turn down this offer.
    Turn in: If you don’t turn in your home work, you will not be allowed to attend the class.
    Take back: I was taken aback when I saw his paper.
    Cut in: I got terribly scared when he cut in between two trucks last night.
    Cross out: This answer is full of crossed out words.

    "I can't put up my classmate" means I can't give him a place to stay.
    "I can't put up with my classmate" means I can't tolerate him

    Give in: We can't give in to the students' demands.

    Check in: We checked in at Beach Hotel at 1 p.m.

    Open out: This classroom opens out into another one.

    Turn in: If you donít turn in your homework, you will not be allowed to attend the class.

    All the others are fine.
