    Re: please tell me

    a) and c) are correct, b) is incorrect. Try the verb bathe,

    Ex: I'm going to bathe.

    Have a bath/shower: especially British English*
    Take a bath/shower: especally American English*

    When you bath, you have a bath: used mainly in British English. The three children all bath in the same bathwater.**

    If you shower, you wash yourself by standing under a spray of water from a shower. There wan't time to shower or change clothes.**

    Re: please tell me

    I see it this way.

    I am going to take a bath. (I bath myself)
    I am going to have a bath (someone would bath me due to my paid for)

    I am going to have my house cleaned. (I paid so someone would do the job)

    ready for the red let me hear
